The Real Banksy
Is your moustache real? :P

Nope. Fake nose, moustache, and massive NHS glasses. This makes me unrecognisable to the many CCTV cameras the plods have put up all over the place. “One nation under CCTV” as someone said (it was me!).

What I’ve done here is stencilled the phrase “what’re you looking at?” in front of a CCTV camera that has been turned to face a wall. Basically it’s a comment on the, ah, pervasiveness of CCTV in our society.
Also, in England young lads who don’t know any better will often say “what are you looking at” to someone right before they mug them. So it’s a clever double meaning.
