SURVEILLANCE LIGHT BOX
45cm x 45cm x 10cm
plywood, laser cutting on a plexiglass, led light tape, and synchronous motor
The moving lightsspread through the pierced holes indicating location of surveillance cameras and projected on all sides of walls and spectator’s bodies. Moving like a search light finding someone or monitoring in a prison, the light inside the box makes eerie vibes in the space where the box is installed. For spectators it is not easy to escape the light spreading from all sides and projecting onto their bodies. These effects represent vulnerable people who cannot escape data surveillance and cannot help but be passive before the surveillance.
