HeHe, a English and German duo made up of Helen Evans and Heiko Hansen, defines itself as a "platform for art, design and research that explores new avenues for integrating electronic media in the physical environment."
The idea in Sirène is to invert the roles of the police and citizens thanks to an anti-police radar. The program designed by HeHe allows one to detect the sound of a police siren in the street thanks to a device installed on a balcony. When a siren is detected, the system is automatically activated, filming the street and hence the police car as it passes by.
