“What you looking at?” is an experiment, a performance, a provocation and a mocking take on the surveillance policies of contemporary society. It is also a multimedia piece that explores these surveillance boundaries and challenges them in a comical way. The idea for this body of work was inspired by the theater group “Surveillance Camera Players“ (SCP) which performed plays like Orwell’s “1984” in public spaces of New York. Their aim was to make the people question the role of surveillance in their life. This is also one of the goals of this piece, but through a more unorthodox way. The main concept of this project is the transformation of a person (i.e. me) into a CCTV camera. Once transformed, this human-CCTV walks on busy streets of London filming people’s reactions to it. The human-CCTV camera disguise consists of a high visibility vest with the phrase “CCTV in operation” and two wide-angle body-cameras: the first located on the forehead and the second on the back. Since this was also meant to be an experiment, nobody was sure of what exactly will be the final product. This turned out to be a gratifying surprise after a chain of unplanned events, like a questioning in a police station, for example. I hope you enjoy watching this short film as much as I enjoyed producing it!
