mixed media and closed-circuit video installation

- - -

Pinkeye challenges normative understandings of the surveillance apparatus by introducing qualities of contagion, infection or proliferation to the cybernetic coupling of the closed-circuit video loop. Given the static nature of the installation, however, this contagion is ambiguous: does it attack the central locus of surveillant optics, or is it rather being secreted outward in capillarized form?
