Die !Mediengruppe Bitnik hatte zu Beginn des Jahren ein Päckchen an Julian Assange geschickt und die Reise per im Paket versteckter Kamera dokumentiert. Jetzt machen sie dasselbe wieder, diesmal live per Webcam mit einem Päckchen von Herrn Assange an den im Knast sitzenden Aktivist Nabeel Rajab vom Bahrain Centre for Human Rights und Human Rights Watch. Hier das Päckchen auf Twitter, da eine Karte zum Tracking.
«Delivery for Mr. Rajab» is a live mail art piece. A parcel with a hidden camera is sent by post from Julian Assange to Nabeel Rajab. Through a hole in the parcel, the camera documents and live-tweets its journey through the postal system, letting anyone online follow the parcels status in real-time. The images captured by the camera are transferred to this website and the Bitnk Twitter account in realtime. So, as the parcel slowly makes its way to Jaw Prison in Bahrain, anyone online can follow the parcel's status in realtime.
The recipient, Nabeel Rajab, is a Bahraini human rights activist, opposition leader and protest leader. He was arrested several times in 2011 and 2012 during the ongoing national uprising in Bahrain. Currently, he is serving a two year prison sentence for protest-related charges and has been jailed at Jaw Prison in the South province of Bahrain since August 2012.
