Three Point Detection, 2020

Three Point Detection, revisits the Westfield Shopping Center where Emily led a Dazzle Walk* in November 2019. Through accessing available traffic cameras online that line the shopping center’s boundary, Emily walked the perimeter and repurposed the footage.

Does being watched make you feel safe?
Who should control a public space, its users or its owners?
Can surveillance be kind?
Who decides who decides?

Three Point Detection is part of the series ‘Four Films of Solace’ consisting of four short films created by co-founders of The Dazzle Club responding to, and working with, archives of Dazzle Walks from the duration of the project.

The series was created for the exhibition Rights of Way at Onomatopee in Eindhoven in November 2020.

A publication responding to the work and the exhibition is available here.

*A term coined by The Dazzle Club; a Dazzle Walk is a silent walk choreographed by an artist through a public space. Everyone who attends would wear face paint following the concept of CV Dazzle, developed by artist Adam Harvey.
