Casefile001 attempts to establish a visual aesthetic for a larger web-based project that considers surveillance and its effect on architecture throughout New York City. Many recognize the ubiquitous icon spread throughout their city, raised high, secured firmly to a wall or pole above their heads. CCTV cameras bespeckle our neighborhoods as if they’re a motif from a Hieronymus Bosch painting. Surveillance is wall-to-wall, even still in this post-Snowden era. This project uses the surveillance infrastructure of New York City to create a set of photographs around this dystopian like narrative. Inspired by the aesthetics of film noir, German expressionist cinema, brutalism, and graphic novels, this series aims to increase awareness of public surveillance programs that affect our lives as contemporary citizens.
