"PC technology allows people to communicate and disseminate information around the world at any time, which I think has positive consequences in furthering the idea of democracy. The ideal would be that all citizens could use computers and video cameras, and other types of technology to record their stories for people around the world. I'd like to see a building immediately opposite of the United Nations which would be an archive of human rights abuses, so any citizen of the world could film and record their story and send it to this archive, no matter how gruesome it might be, and people could acknowledge and answer them. At least their experience wouldn't be denied."

- Peter Gabriel 1994

Witness is what he built from that idea.
