it’s being called grand theft auto for the surveillance generation, only instead of being played out in the digital world, it’s played out in the real world. and the object of the game isn’t to steal cars or pull off other underworld pranks but to take out big brother’s eyes by destroying cctv surveillance cameras spread across the city.

that’s the new game being played in Berlin and other German cities under the rules of camover [note: the website keeps changing addresses so link may not work], an activist sport for those who hate surveillance cameras, according to the guardian.

teams of players are charged with taking out as many cameras as possible — by ripping them out of mounts, cutting cables or covering the lenses with black paint using super soaker squirt guns — and videotaping the vandalism in the process.
