jacquard weaving 40” x 60” cotton warp with lurex weft
This is an ongoing series of weavings that addresses historical and contemporary surveillance practices.
During my undergrad at Concordia University I approached several security guards and requested surveillance footage from their archive for an art project. After months of rejection, finally one guard did provide me with a handful of VHS tapes of recorded footage that was a few months old. I used stills from that footage to begin this series of weavings, which has expanded to include other found surveillance footage, as well as footage I have taken myself by installing cameras around my neighbourhood. The project serves to question who is watching who, and with what kind of permission?
