As Seen on CCTV

“As seen on CCTV” questions where beauty belongs and challenges the notions of normality. The concept in contention is the aesthetics of the natural environment as juxtaposed with the human made concrete cities and sprawling suburbs. A creative response to the dull urban areas challenges the status quo and begins to create ideas of art within a contextual challenge. An askew horizon which compliments the three dimensional abstract suggests a hyper reality and the theme of challenge within an oppressive hegemony. This piece also questions the concept of self-expression in the suburbs as this is increasingly being threatened by the limitations of privacy as dictated by an authoritarian style of surveillance. Big Brother closes in on progressive free thought and dominates ownership of place to ensure conformity.
