ocularis: eye surrogates

The latest tape in Kim-Trang's eight tape series on metaphorical and physical blindness Ocularis: Eye Surrogates addressing issues of surveillance and technology that allow us to see what we normally can not. Through a 1-800 number publicized nationally, recorded messages were collected of the callers’ fears and fantasies about video surveillance. The video highlights several narratives around video surveillance: a teenage babysitter watching pornography, a racist elementary school bully, a church leader attempting rape -- not to re-iterate the conventional privacy argument, but to engage in a consideration of the desire to watch surveillance materials --the desire to watch something go wrong.
