2006/2010 - VIDEO INSTALLATION                                                                                               


videoCTRLroom is the information sorting center of the urban video control system. A postmodern panoptic where people discovers to be watched and watchers, integral part of a well-oiled mechanism of oppression.
The audience is filmed by hidden infrared web-cams set just in front of the building, at the entrance, on the staircase and in the same room of the installation. The images of the audience alternates with noise effects and other videos discovered and stolen from the webcams of unaware Chatroulette users. The video inputs are managed through VVVV which send them to the installation: a PVC tubes structure embedding 4 or 6 screens made up with the same tubes.
