The SPLIT is a documentation about the concept of recording and existence. Through material collected from sites that give you free access to security cameras, the viewer is invited to act as an observer. The recorded images create a narrative between different places and people. People who don’t know that their footage is being shared so easily, unaware that they are part of a new reality. How safe are we in our everyday life? How is our data used and what implications are hidden behind this condition? This project creates a virtual reality where the figures and spaces blends into a new environment. The sound in this video results from the raw data of the collected images. The work thus blurs the boundaries between the real and the unreal and ultimately invites us to examine a new monotonous reality through a question, are we in the position of the observer or the object of observation?
