The Eye - Choreography for surveilled space

a site-specific dance piece for 80 performers of all ages, developed as a humorous homage to the Busby Berkeley Hollywood revue movies. The choreography unfolds like a kaleidoscope and is filmed from above and screened on surveillance system operators whose vantage point is shared by the audience. The project took place at Lakeside Shopping Centre and Brentford Housing Estates.

The "moving" image, and in particular the evolution of film in the digital or networked age, has been a core theme of ambientTV.NET's productions since its inception. Characteristic of our moving image productions is the blurring of boundaries between linear and hypertextual narrative, directed work and multiple authorship, and post-produced and self-generative pieces. Expanding the idea of the viewing environment is also of importance; recent works have been shown on electronic billboards in public urban spaces and open air cinemas in remote rural places.
