FACELESS

Artist biography

Originally from Vienna, Manu Luksch is an artist and filmmaker now working in London. Her practice questions concepts of progress. As founding director of ambientTV.NET, she focuses on the effects of emerging technologies on daily life and public space.

Project approach

FACELESS is a feature-length film produced exclusively using images captured by London’s CCTV cameras. The British capital is indeed the city with the highest concentration of surveillance cameras in the world.

These images are obtained through the UK Data Protection Act, which allows citizens to request a copy of the recordings on which they appear, and are then used as legal ready-mades by the filmmaker.

FACELESS takes place in a society without history nor future where humans are deprived of their face... until?a?woman?recovers?hers.

Through its unique approach, the film questions and criticizes the laws that control the video surveillance of society. This work tackles the notions of identity and public space and draws the viewer’s attention on the ubiquity on those security cameras.
