Surveillance Plane was made for the Mini Israel exhibition at the Israel Museum in 2006 (curator: Larry Abramson).

 

It consisted of a 1.7 meter long model airplane that slowly circled over a sizable portion of the exhibition space and relayed live black and white video to a monitor at the enterance to the space. On entering the space, people would see the video but only later, after seeing the plane, realize they are under surveillance too.

The plane was counterweighted with a lead satelite.
