SINKHOLE

Sinkhole, a music video for the Indie Rock band Flies&Flies Combines footage stolen from unsecured private security cams freely available on the internet and simple gestural choreography performed by myself and the a member of the group. The cam footage comments on the surveillance society, and the insecurity of digital systems. However, the band also see these spaces as offering hope – when so much of our lives are consumed with chaotic information exchanges there is something calming about an empty, liminal transmission on the internet. There is also a compelling, voyeuristic thrill – as the footage is broadcast live there is the possibility that anything could happen here and that we might be the only, or one of very few, observers.
