watchcam 61



created for 'mobile exposure' exhibit


video link


'watchcam 61' is a video piece constructed from 61 still images
captured on a casio wristcam; the cam is fairly inconspicuous and
very mobile. to covertly take pictures, one must pretend to work
a watch or something similar to a cell phone. i find most people
are unassuming in our increasingly mobile-culture and it
is quite easy to capture inconspicuously. the audio is a
narrative montage of a descriptive and reactive nature to the
images and their context. each still blends into the next to
create a flow while the audio binds and releases, surrounding the visual.
