Based on closed circuit television (CCTV) from anonymous global sources, “Closed Circuit” examines the ubiquitous state of Big Brother’s watchful eye.
Just as the footage—taken from hotels and airports and parking lots and elevators—possesses an air of anonymity, so do the subjects, who are reduced to faceless projections. The closer the CCTV zooms in, the less concrete information remains. Shadowy bodies float through glaring spaces: they could be anyone doing anything, any where at any time.
Yet the very process of singling them out, sometimes with a red target for emphasis, gives their mundane behavior a sinister tint. Recorded, ID’d, processed. tagged. Who can keep their heads above the deluge?
