Paul Virillio maintains that modern society has made us, and everything around us into reproductions and that 'reproducibility eliminates any aura of the original or a sense of uniqueness.'
Negotiating a world filled with images of ourselves is a sticky business. Like wearing a velcro suit, the way others look at our image clings to us and adds to our view of ourselves as we navigate social and public space. How do we recognise ourselves within the multiple constructed views that are reflected back at us? Installed in the midst of the visible takes Virillio's CCTV and internet based technological replication as a starting point to explore how this proliferation of images is affecting the way we perceive ourselves.
