“Think of it as a prologue to a sleazy thriller. A sort of shaggy-dog plot of voyeuristic atmospheres.” This video is about the voyeuristic license of the camera: exposing, uncovering, glimpsing things obscured and revealed. A series of still images that fade to black, this piece challenges the viewer to construct the identity of the person behind the camera. Who is the subject and who is the object? Though a man’s voice outlines the piece, it becomes clear that a woman is photographing—we “spy” through her eyes.
