We Are Watching
We Are Watching is a project I am developing in response to the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympics, to be held in Vancouver and Whistler this February. I am exploring ideas of surveillance by creating a place for "sousveillance", to stand next to, or confront the "Official" representation offered to the world through the regulations imposed by VANOC and the Olympic Committee. The collection of sousveillance will be accrued by asking attendees to collect and submit video footage of various Olympic events and celebrations. The resulting footage will be projected during the Olympics and Paralympics on the building which houses the Jeffrey Boone Gallery, in Gastown, Vancouver. I will write more, but hopefully this is enough info to inspire participation.
