Someone to Watch over You (2 Parts)

Synopsis
Two video works which reflect the increasingly pervasive presence of the video camera in modern everyday life: as an agent of public surveillance and as an equally voyeuristic point-of-access into people’s private and personal lives. DOUBLE BLIND was made by Sophie Calle and Gregory Shephard, THE GIANT by Michael Klier.
