Project Description

This project looks at the proposals for and practice of ubiquitous CCTV coverage in urban areas. It might understand these practices as amounting to a kind of documentary film studio. The project would explore questions around political subjectivity and citizenship, in relation to densely networked urban structures.

I would be happy for prospective students to take up these themes and propose their own project, the above is just one idea. Generally, I am interested in projects that take up themes related to remote sensing, computation, technical networks, and political subjectivity, geopolitics, political economy and spatial practice. Suitable students would hold an MA in a subject related to spatial practices. Film, Architecture, Engineering, Urbanism, Design, for example. Other students might be eligible thanks to practical experience in a professional capacity.
