Project title:
Untitled

Form:
Real time monitoring, ten subjects-artists, their activities and surrounding in subjective shots trough cameras connected to subjects themeselves during 10-12 hours.

Concept:
Projection of real-time pseudo spy movie in public space. Each of ten (10) cameras sends unedited signal in computer unit inside the Live Studio. Picture is being projected on video projector inside the Live studio, while the camera placed inside the Live Studio shows happenings outside the Mobile studios. The interactivity of this action is in viewer's possibility to choose among ten (10) feeds which one he/she'll chooses to follow. By choosing one of the cameras viewer is getting clear picture of activity and surrounding of an actor in the exact same time.

Each camera is positioned by the artist, actually he/she carries it, and from his/her own perspective records his/her own activities and surroundings during the day in various themes and filed of interest. This way, subject-artists is placed in a sophisticated spy position, to spy and to be spied.

Aim:
With this way of approach group of artists tries to answer several questions of contemporary life and art, using digital technologies.

It points out problems of individuality, public and personal identity, borders between public and personal, multi and omni absence and control over public physical and media space.
With techniques of reality show, this action erases the "third person" or "objective" camera. It turns a viewer-voyeur into a legible spy hidden behind the public video projection. It also shapes the new type of author and work without script and censorship.
