species of spaces 1

video installation, drawings and architectural blueprints


Species of Spaces is an investigation initialized in 2019 which is based on images captured on surveillance cameras.

The first work of this series presents in videos, architectural blueprints and annotations, intimate diaries of 5 characters built based on domestic images of surveillance cameras with live access on the internet.

The characters act as if they are not being observed and as if they completely trust in the technology at hand, highlighting the naturalized processes of surveillance in our contemporary world. The diaries carry an insight on the dysfunctionalities in a society of hyper-surveillance.
