A technique that is commonly used to ensure safety and to track crime is the surveillance camera. Worldwide, millions of surveillance cameras are used to monitor homes, buildings and other objects. The surveillance cameras are often not or poorly protected, so the owners can easily be spied on by malicious, and therefore also by me. In that way I observed a store that caught my interest because of safety procedures for a few months. It became a one-sided relationship between the staff and me. I gathered information and footage which has developed into a video installation. Below only the video can be seen.
