The text will first give a definition of paranoia as an element that implies the victimisation of the innocent; paranoia is based on the rejection and denial of vital parts of the self and the construction of an invincible enemy. The discourse of traditional surveillance has been focusing on the concept of cyber-perception since technology is used to serve as a mediator of our own image of self and others. It contextualises some traditional technologies important for the changes in the paradigms of vision and how they imply a particular view of the concepts of distance and subjectivity. The practical examples is an art work that is composed of a modified robotic vacuum cleaner with a robotised vision appliance. The object will display three different kinds of misbehaviour: firstly it is paranoid, secondly, it is bossy, and thirdly, it is a redundant consumer. It has three different modes of operation: stand alone, operated form a local flash file that control the robot and display previous visual material recorded by it, and teleoperated from a web site. The device questions the limit between the public and the private, between the collective and the personal.
