“The popular CBS reality show returns for an 11th round of voyeurism and psychodrama, as 12 strangers live together in a specially outfitted house where their every move is caught on camera… One by one a houseguest is evicted by his or her peers, until the last houseguest standing takes home the $500,000 prize…”


Description of Big Brother Season 20 taken from Google, January 2019, (Excerpt)


…Is Always Watching functions as a commentary on privacy, surveillance, and entertainment. It prompts the viewer to re-examine their personal value of privacy within a society in which the commodification of personal data is increasingly normalized. This photo essay is made up of a series of screenshots from the popular reality television show Big Brother, sourced from online clips.


The work is meant to be unnerving. In highlighting the most bizarre, strange, or uncomfortable moments from online clips of various seasons of Big Brother, the imagery attempts to transcend my personal feelings and concerns regarding privacy to you, the viewer. Often the frames that were selected, or screen grabbed, were moments where the subject breaks the fourth wall with the viewer. I personally found that moment of recognition to be the most jarring or anxiety inducing.


In a time when mass surveillance is expected, I believe it is our right as a society to take every precaution to prevent our personal data from being exploited. In not exercising our right to inhibit third parties from peering into our lives via our uncovered webcams, our devices, and our app permissions, we invite unwanted eyes to view us in the same way that we view the figures in this photo essay.  

Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival

Networked Disruptions

Exhibition Dates: April 1 – 30th, 2019
Location: Online in conjunction with FLEFF 2019 in Ithaca, NY

The 21st edition of the Finger Lakes Film Festival (FLEFF) investigates the theme of disruptions and invites submissions for its online group exhibition, Networked Disruptions.


disruption (n.): “a rending asunder, a bursting apart, forcible separation into parts,” early 15c., originally medical, “laceration of tissue”; general sense from 1640s, from Medieval Latin disruptionem (nominative disruptio) “a breaking asunder,” noun of action from past-participle stem of Latin “disrumpere, break apart, split, shatter, break to pieces,” from dis- “apart” (see dis-) + rumpure “to break,” from PIE root *runp- “to break” (see corrupt (adj.)).


Disruptions stop the flow of events, ideas, processes, and structures. They produce stoppages, breaks, and fissures where old flows are halted and new ones can emerge. In some cases, disruptions are productive, as in technological and political revolutions. In other cases, disruptions are destabilizing and counterproductive, as in severe weather patterns and market volatilities.


Global climate disruptions consist in unwanted and unnatural environmental changes. They give rise to rising air and water temperatures, to rising water and toxicity levels, to rising fears and anxieties. Disrupting consumerist habits, such as use of cheap fossil fuels to power single-person or single-family (“private”) automobiles and produce single-use (“disposable”) plastics, is an urgent response that can be distributed across the world.


Networked disruptions consist in outages, censorship, violations of privacy, and thefts of identities. Hackers have often worked to unlock content and interrupt the algorithms that narrow the aggregated information in our search engine results or our social media feeds.


This exhibition seeks projects that explore disruptions in relation to our natural and virtual environments. Ones that contribute to broadening dialogues and debates.

The exhibition will launch in conjunction with the onsite festival in Ithaca, New York, United States.
