Private View

Private View

Interactive video installation

The University Of Brighton, Brighton, UK

July 2008

In Private View the audience member walks into a studio and is confronted with a familiar scene, the relayed image of him or her self entering the frame of a wall mounted CCTV style monitor. However, in this instance, there path appears to be obstructed by the digital apparition of a slumped, scarcely breathing body. The body's presence in the frame is an illusion, a chimera of pixels.My hope for this work is to put the viewer in an unfamiliar position; to observe their response, and consider their responsibility, to a non-person.
