In March-April 2008, ShainaA collaborated with a number of agencies in Manchester city to open up CCTV control rooms to members of the public. The Manchester Metropolitan University and the Arndale Mall were the principal venues, and over 30 members of the public were able to attend one-hour 'clinics' in the CCTV rooms. Some results were shown as part of the exhibition 'What do you want?' at Cornerhouse, Manchester from March-April 2008.
In advance of CAMP's solo at De Appel and in collaboration with LIMA - a screening of two of the studio’s earlier acclaimed projects that examine surveillance, society, and cinematic apparatus.
In March 2008 Shaina Anand collaborated with Manchester Metropolitan University and Arndale Shopping Centre to open working CCTV environments to a general audience. People normally 'enclosed' by these networks came into the control rooms to view, observe and monitor this condition, endemic in the UK.
CCTV social premiered on April 3rd at Cornerhouse Manchester, as part of Asian Trienale Manchester 08, organised by Shisha. The show, titled what do you want, feautred five artists from India and was curated by Kathy Rae Huffman.
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.
