I Am a Spy

I Am a Spy

Jsem špion

Editing: Lucy Harris
Producer, Co-producer: Sarah Wood
Color: Colour and B&W
Language: English
Synopsis
The contours of the visible are explored through found images that unify the possible perspectives afforded by views from above. These bird’s-eye views represent the vanishing point of effective observation, where watching seems inevitable. Facts become history the moment they’re labelled and depiction loses control over its reflections.

DETAIL:
The aim of spying is not just to obtain information but also to experiment, to test and to see how the information could be used.
