Under Surveillance

Surveillance, with its objective character, is used to record and reflect reality. However, this type of machine perspective is deceptive while extending our senses, creating a barrier between vision and cognition by simulating our environment, enveloping us in a vast system of simulacra. They are everywhere, all-seeing, like a God-like gaze, constantly shaping and consolidating the objective world we see. Under Surveillance reconstructs the living places we take for granted through the lens of simulated surveillance, revealing the authoritative role played by machines and exploring the infinite possibilities hidden behind the barrier.
