Want to raise a kid to be ready for the surveillance society? Get started the right way with a CCTV mobile! This is based off of a drawing by the street artist Banksy and is not for sale. All of the files you need to make are free here.
Now, let's make this thing!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Model the CCTV and Centerpiece
I could've just drawn the cameras, they're not that complicated, but instead I decided to just model it in SketchUp once so I could quickly make different angles of it.
The SketchUp file below has two mirrored versions of the CCTV in the same space. Rotate both together to get a new angle and hide one at a time for each image you need of it.
With the resulting images, flip one of the images so that they can be attached back to back.
As for the centerpiece, I recreated that in Illustrator.
Step 2: Print and Cut
Print out the attached PDFs and cut them out with scissors or an X-Acto knife.
Step 3: Glue It!
Take each pair of images and glue together
Step 4: Prep Pieces and Hanger
- Find the center of gravity by balancing it on your fingertip
- Hold the piece the way you want it to hang
- Poke a hole anywhere directly above the center of gravity
- It's science!
Step 5: Hang It!
Attach everything with thread and hang it above a future obedient citizen.
