Campus Walk

Around 4 in the evening, the sun came out for a bit. Stuart, (who we had earlier visited at 2am on Friday night to witness the night shift) takes me for a walk around the MMU area. He maps all 36 'open street' cameras. Steve in the control keeps close track on us, cameras overhead rotate and tilt down. I film them instinctively, like animals stalking prey they watch, dark-eyed. Keeping Steve company in the control room are Chris and Anna and Elizabeth, the 4 o'clock visitors. As Stuart and me end our camera count, they spy 2 of their friends cutting across the park.

CCTV Social

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.

A Photogenetic Line: Experimenter 2019

A 100-foot long branching sequence of cutouts drawing from the photo archives of The Hindu, a 140-year old newspaper. Cutouts here are a way of reframing existing photographs as new organisms and to create a new boundary or border for the image.
