Installation Mockup

Liquid Surveillance addresses the public-private binaries. It is an installation with sound and 50 photos. The photos in the installation were taken at Los Angeles International Airport and the sounds were collected and edited from more than 10 airports all over the world. The work was installed on a corridor at University of Southern California where people walk by. Airport is a space where the boundary between public and private are straddled – it is a public space where people’s private and personal gestures are under everyone else’s surveillance. I translated the private-public contradiction by setting up photos of intimate moments that I captured at airport in another public space, the corridor.
