Surveillance in Norway (2018)
3 self-made surveillance cameras
I am really curious about different situations – I like to provoke them and work in
a specific context. In this case, I made self-made surveillance cameras and placed them to a remote place in a Norwegian forest.
The viewer can be confused, trying to understand the function or the meaning of the cameras in that place. The ethics of digital image can become alarming. Are you behaving the way you would behave when you know that you are being watched? Furthermore, one might also start to feel really insecure, not knowing who and why would be using that visual data.
After finishing my project, I went on a roadtrip to Norwegian Fjords. The local road tax institution sent me photos of my roadtrip in their country. That is a casual example of the surveillance in Norway.
