Commissioned by Scotland's Central Regional Council this project took as its starting point the complex and newly established CCTV system in the City of Stirling. The work suggests the way we interpret the world through televised images, and the way our lives are monitored more and more by surveillance cameras.

On one side of each element of the work the Images were appropriated from a CCTV camera, re-photographed and dyed blue – conjuring up images of the sky and infinity. The figures are unidentifiable but recognisable. On the other side are photographs of the sky. Each element is part of a single image to be read across and along the street.

Medium: Ink jet print on cotton vinyl mesh from dyed, Xeroxed, silverprints of CCTV images and the sky.

Dimensions: Each element: 5mts x 1mt 75cms.
