SELFIE

This is an interactive artwork about the watch and being watched, Selfie and surveillance, personal and public. I separate them into two readings: On the left side, you watch yourself; on the other side, you are being watched and surveillance.
 
When viewers stand or walk in front of this installation, the video camera will capture their faces. Moreover, when the distance between viewers and installation is less than 150cm, they will be recorded automatically. So the fact is, when an audience interactive with this installation, he will happy to watch his own colorful faces and other people’s motion. He is a watcher. However, he may not notice that his motion and action will also be captured and record at the same time. It means he is a watcher been watched as well.
