Telepresence workshop, Photostill

MEDAILLON

Here is the final shoot we made for the workshop – waiting for more work to be done soon on the interface, and the communication of the project.
We decided to change the name from Photo-steal to photostill as it stresses less the problematic of privacy (which is already enough present) – we tried to make it not too much uncanny.

Abstract: The project proposes an intimate access to one close friend / lover. You can view what your friend sees, or at least a glimpse of the environment he’s involving into.
Issues: the project mainly highlight the issue of privacy VS mutual confidence; but also voyeurism, surveillance, etc.
These issues are connected to my topic of the feeling of absence/presence, but not directly, therefore we did not spend to much time on it during the workshop session, we will come back to it later.
