You Can Do What You Want From The Pavement
'You Can Do What You Want From The Pavement' (2019). In attempting to seek refuge or stay in this country, people are scrutinised while being held in limbo, their lives surveilled and forced into stasis. At Lunar House, a building of the UK Border Agency (UKBA), people are submitted to hostile dissections of their lives to apply for asylum. These images form part of Still Looking, a project which quite literally looks back at this site of surveillance and violence, engaging in sousveillance (watching from below) to turn the scrutiny back on the scrutinisers. The project consists of videos made from still images, inviting viewers to add to the gaze being turned back onto this system.
