Title "You Are My Subjects" 2004 By Stanza
This online networked artwork uses live real time images from a camera in NYC . What you are seeing on the screen is happening in New York as you see it in real time. Someone is always watching you in a world of total surveillance culture. This artwork deals with the aesthetics of CCTV and the voyeuristic notion of who controls the data and who has access to the data. Millions of hours of CCTV are watched in private in closed off networks. "You Are My Subjects", turns CCTV images into artworks. Real time shifting paintings. The "subjects" in this case are the subjects of my paintings made visable through my studio to global audience via the internet which acts as a gallery to display the work .You are My Subjects is an artwork by Stanza.

"You Are My SubjectS" uses data from a single fixed camera in New York, focusing on subjects as they pass below it. The work can be viewed in a web browser via the Internet and turn us all into voyeurs of eerie 'parallel realities'.

“CCTV systems are everywhere in the public domain. Millions of hours worth of data are recorded every day by these cameras. We are all unwitting bit part actors, in the filming of our own lives. Usually we cannot watch. The results are not collected for broadcast back to the public. Rather they are monitored, filtered, distributed and archived without our knowledge or permission. The city has millions of CCTV cameras. One can take the sounds and images off live web streams to offer them back to the public for new interpretations of the city. In essence the city can be imagined as the biggest TV station in existence.” -Stanza
