An exploration of the apparatus of surveillance and the ways in which Baltimore's disenfranchised communities have been a testing ground of these new technologies through intentional obfuscation and minimal public oversight. ‘Who's Watching’ exists to introduce a conversation about these methods and their use.
Participants at two sites are encompassed by video and audio of those in the other while submitting themselves to monitoring including audio, data and face cataloguing.
A video feed between the two sites is captured by a panoramic infrared security camera and sent to projectors, providing a full dome coverage. This feed is periodically interrupted with local imagery and a panoptic view of FBI drone footage secretly collected during the Baltimore Uprising.
