'The State of Translocality, is a collaborative project curated by Alexandra Dias Ferreira and Bettina Wind since 2006; it is a platform for reflection and interaction in the field of translocality'. Carla Cruz’s pamphlet aims to create a feeling of doubt or a rumour concerning surveillance cameras.

Is it true? Is it a message in a network; is it a science fiction novel or an article in wikipedia? It aims to question us about the fact that nowadays we live in a constant state of exception.
