Symbolic Camera 

What is a

symbolic camera?

The symbolic camera  
"explores assumptions of the influence of the camera on interaction". 
It is a way of non-verbally communicating a concept or idea through visual means.
It does not have to look like a conventional camera and can convey whatever the creator intends it to. 
If someone came up to you with something that looked like a camera but was quite clearly not a real one,
how would you respond?
