No longer concerned by threats to our right to privacy, the ubiquitous surveillance camera has become so commonplace that we forget it's there. As human beings living in the 21st century, our existence is validated by the perpetual recording of our lives. This video brings our attention to the presence of the camera, while igniting the fantasy and thrill of being perpetually observed.

"The panopticon and the classical spectacle in Debord's sense have given way to an all-encompassing medial infrastructure in which the camera no longer records everyday life but produces it itself as a kind of play or ritual." ~ John Miller
