Some of my other works include: Space of a sound
(2011), a distributed sound trap; Control yourself
(2012), a way of entering into a video surveillance system; and Paranoiapp
(2015), a tool or social psychology experiment in the form of a mobile application.
For Control Yourself I used the existing surveillance system of the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, and also installed several additional CCTV cameras to fully cover the exhibition space. Videos were transmitted from every camera to wireless video glasses in real time. Anyone could put them the glasses on, find himself in the image and then try to walk through the museum halls. Thus, the exhibition space would become virtual for the viewer, who would find himself an object and a subject of his own interest at the same time.
As it turned out, it is very difficult to use this image to orient in the space. The imperceptible restriction is the difference between one's sensation and the information obtained from the image.
