Bowviews (2018-ongoing)

I have begun collecting screenshots from security cameras and webcams placed on the bows of various cruise ships. The work deals with tracking, movement, and communication between a ship at sea and the outside world.

The images are often pixelated, distorted, and glitched. Sometimes the cameras are pointed down to the deck, which is reserved for crew members on most cruise ships; other times the camera is steadfast in its isolation of the landscape in front of it. Although I’m responsible for choosing the decisive moment, the ship becomes responsible for composition and aesthetic.
