Sur-veil-ance

Location: Boston Architectural College

Sur-veil-lance was a 24hr installation at Boston Architectural College for the annual ‘parti’ celebration. By employing framed plastic sheeting, the screens seemingly poking out from the wall and confront the viewer with a  live feed image of the people looking at the next screen,. If one is viewing the first screen they would see what is happening in front of the next screen and the same for those viewing the second screen and then those viewing the third screen would see a feed of what was happening behind the installation. The concept was intended to hint at ideas of surveillance and security in our contemporary landscape, as well as a reactive facade or interface that breaks the third wall of architecture and user.
