Evening Landscape from the Control Room

SUNDAY, 18TH NOVEMBER
6:00 pm sharp
CAMP Rooftop
90 minutes : Live video, audio and archival print material, with live commentary.

From the rooftop of this artists' studio in Chuim Village, you are taken on a virtual tour of the neighbourhood: its forgotten golf course and mango orchards, it's Ambedkarite settlements and coconut Agripadas, its 150-year history and the 1.5 seconds in which a spotted pigeon shows us the future.

For the past many years, CAMP has been working with CCTV equipment as a movie-making medium. Live video from standard CCTV PTZ cameras allows us to look around this location in great detail, and keep its memory in storage. The 1000th sun setting over Juhu beach is just the beginning of this evening's story. What follows is in the tradition of landscape cinema. Images from Chuim Village, both near and far are spoken over by three people, who add historical or contemporary details. Sometimes a newspaper article from 1991, or a map from 1905, or an excel sheet from 2018 also takes part.
