Surveillance Theater

Blake Fall-Conroy (US)

Surveillance cameras depict live, real images sourced from security cameras accessed and fed from all over the world. The real images are pieced together into collages that depict unreal scenes, and the audience member acts as security operative, watching the dream worlds of the work for any real activity.


Blake Fall-Conroy is an artist and self-taught mechanical engineer. His artmaking practice is conceptually motivated, commenting on a wide range of social issues from consumerism and the American spectacle, to surveillance and the ubiquitous use of technology.
