ABOUT THE ARTWORK: The key point of this Beholders project is to personify the surveillance camera. By using various color and posing them, those cameras' imaginary roles, emotions and personalities are exposed to the audience. The surveillance camera is the city's observer, but citizens who are observed seldom look the cameras face to face. Thus, I would like to create an equal relation between people and surveillance cameras by photographing them from the perspective of portraiture. I hope to enable the audiences to face surveillance cameras right in front of them, and to figure out their “expressions”.
