It is unsettling to think that while we watch screens they quietly watch back at us. We are often passive to this exchange, ignoring the consequences of constant surveillance for technology’s comfort and convenience.

 

Monitor brings our 21st century to-and-fro with screens to the surface, reflecting the viewer back at them in various ways as the installation watches them within the gallery space. Disjointed and disfigured, recognisable but not representational – its mirrored surface creates a caricature of the viewer that can be equal parts captivating and disturbing.
