Reporters Without Borders has launched Voiceless Eyes, an interactive site at voiceless-eyes.com, demonstrating the need for a free press. Who knows what goes unseen, or unread, without the rights of the free press? The site uses webcam-activated technology to encourage users to cover and uncover their mouths to become aware of the harsh realities that can go unseen when restrictions are placed on free speech. An alternative version of the site uses the space bar.
The Voiceless Eyes project was developed at Les 84 Paris by creative directors Olivier Bienaime and Herve Bienaime, head of creative technology Jean-Vincent Roger, strategic planner Nicolas Camillini and art director Antoine Arnoux.
