Concession 2: Surveillance

A pop up video performance on the side of a country road near a small town in Ontario.

Created together with Tony Massett in collaboration with Grace Bridgman and with music and performances by Heather Saumer and Doug Tielli.

This unsanctioned event revolved around the mysterious discovery of hidden surveillance cameras on the Second Concession of Glenelg (Concession 2 EGR, West Grey) just outside of Durham. We expect to be under scrutiny, observed, surveilled and even recorded in our daily urban journeys. But the discovery of these cameras, and an examination of the footage on them, is still a shock to the system.
