WINDOW THEATRES

2015

Window Theatres explores the issue of surveillance and how we perform for the camera through still and moving image. By performing the act of absorption, the models appear unaware of my presence, creating an illusion of reality as I perform as an unseen photographer undertaking surveillance on them in their private homes.  Ironically, this aspect is then documented by the subjects CCTV, creating an on-going cycle between surveillance and performance. The use of the window in the imagery subjects the viewer to also becoming a voyeur. The project examines the role of the camera in surveillance and the reality of the resulting imagery, and by extension comments on photography itself as being a constructed representation.
