Day x Day x Day combines ritual action and surveillance to create a meditation on time and identity. I created this piece in partnership with Scenes from Last Week, an installation by Andrew Demirjian that placed surveillance cameras in storefronts, recording and displaying street scenes for one week. I staged an action where I casually but repeatedly walked past the cameras at the same time on three days. I then edited the footage together to create a portrait of a fractured self which splits, multiplies and freely passes through space and time. The video addresses the repetition of urban life and the fluid nature of identity.
