"Georgia State University sincerely apologizes for the traffic problems resulting yesterday from the mounting of a student camera at the 14th Street Bridge,” the university said in a statement. “The camera was one of 18 used by students in an art project and deployed at various locations in the city. Georgia State Police are closely cooperating with the Atlanta Police Department in the removal of all of the cameras."
Here's a picture of the camera, which apparently had "art project, please don't disturb til Spring" written on its side. But at a glance, you could also say it's a suspicious-device-duct-taped-to-a-bridge crossing the busiest north/south thoroughfare in ATL.

Max Blau at Creative Loafing has the story about how Brock Scott called in the tube to APD.
Pinhole cameras made for long-exposures come in all shapes and sizes, and Michael Wesely used his to create this view of MoMA in New York over the course of 34 months. Did Wesely use duct-tape?
