To answer the question ‘who am I ?’ we first have to answer the question ‘where am I ?’

‘I have Been Watching You’ is based on this idea. Relevant information telling us ‘where we are’ is actually present in this city, in the form of surveillance camera imagery, but it is secret or confidential. In the artwork “I’ve been watching you” this information has been visualized and recontextualized. The city is mirrored to its citizens but from an alternative point of view.
