Project approach

Surveillance is the new norm: our daily actions are invisibly tracked by networks of surveillance technologies discreetly embedded into our lives, yet we remain seduced by the entertainment value of these technologies, largely inured to their consequences. TV tracker is a peripatetic device that tracks pedestrians movements through a section of the white tunnel; a serene, ethereal space that momentarily engulfs and releases us from the pressures of the here and now. An animated robotic device, TV tracker is meant to disarm pedestrians by creating a playful engagement with us as it follows our movements and puts us on TV, reminding us of the unexpected ways we are monitored.
