CCTV TV: An evening with CAMP

Capital Circus, 2008

Filmed at the then largest mall in Europe, the Arndale Center, which had been built over the centre of Manchester town after an IRA bombing in 1992. Filmed using the 208 cameras of the mall, from the control room. Over a hundred subjects were followed after they signed a "release form" combining CCTV and documentary image release protocols.
Part of the project CCTV Social.

27 mins, CCTV video.

With Chris Clarke, Marissa Draper, Ultimate Holding Company, Livewire, Cornerhouse
Commissioned by Cornerhouse and Asian Triennial Manchester 08 curated by Kathy Rae Huffman
Post-production commissioned by Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Norway for Reality Effects curated by Tone Hansen.

In Cameras Res, 2019

De Appel, Amsterdam

On three screens, a city-symphony filmed by automated CCTV cameras in Amsterdam. The optical and motor capacities of these cameras are pushed to an extreme. Certain human subjects reappear near or far in the images, suggesting a form of reciprocal knowledge or intent, a secret pact between cameras and people.

Al jaar qabla al daar (The neighbour before the house), 2009-2011

الجار قبل الدار

“The Neighbour before the House” is a series of video probes into the landscape of East Jerusalem. Shot with a CCTV security camera, these images show that before and after instrumental "surveillance", there is inquisitiveness, jest, memory, desire and doubt that pervades the project of watching. In these specific times and places, camera movements and live commentary become ways in which Palestinian residents evaluate what can be seen, and speak about the nature of their distance from others.

60 mins, SD CCTV video and sync audio.
