“In the eyes of the power, every citizen is a potential terrorist.” Giorgio Agamben 

 

A futuristic scenario for a civilian life. This piece involves an aerial camera following an anonymous individual around city spaces, to investigate conflicting desires for identity and anonymity and to reveal the intricate dynamics between watching and being watched while suggesting a new set of rules, ranging from the familiar to the ‘far’ familiar. 

This work is based on an Image from the media of a suspect in terror attack taken place in Copenhagen, Denmark (2015), taken by surveillance camera, in the image we see a figure walking in the street all covered with clothes, his Identity is not clear, potentially It could be anyone.
