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 bow-deck, which is often used as a recreational deck for crew members; other times the camera is steadfast in its isolation of the landscape off the bow. Although I’m responsible for choosing the decisive moment, the ship and captain are in charge of composition and aesthetic, so it is a collaborative effort.

        The archive is updated most days.
