A withdrawn human watches the world though shadow images. The vision of reality dims, the space becomes passive, and the only connection to the outside is received through the media.

We create a false image of safety in using the state’s vision of technology. As I am surveying my neighbourhood, an akward dance is captured by another camera. I don’t feel safe, even though I am participating in the game on two levels, as a observer and as the observed.
