TEKS was co-producer on Vibeke Jensens solo show ‘Closed Circuits’ in Trondheim Art Museum february 11 – march 10th 2002.
‘Closed Circuit’ is a max-based installation about street environment from the artist’s neighbourhood in New York.
A Control Room is maintained by a security guard (the artist), and contains all the equipment that run the installation. Four monitors display edited surveillance footage from a New York street. Another monitor displays a live feed from two CC-cameras placed at each end of the installation. A LCD projector and a CC-camera hang from the ceiling. When visitors enter the Control Room they are caught on camera and projected on the black screen that blocks the space. For a few seconds the projection changes from displaying the slow-motion video street_walking, to displaying the visitors in real time. In contrast to the small surveillance monitors, this projection is scaled to show the subjects in full size. From the museum cafe at the other end of the corridor you see the other side of this interactive projection, while a CC-camera oversees the area and a speaker prompts did you look over your shoulder when you pass by.
