Responding to the mediated voyeurism of the highline, Visible Voyeur created an intimate experience in public space. Our goal was to facilitate an unexpected discovery, one that would be intriguing, but violate your sense of what is right and normal in public space. The initial installation, on the highline, looked quite nice, and as a result most of our pieces were immediately stolen. So we didn’t get to observe the kind of discoveries we were interested in. But it was encouraging to see people excited to look through the peep-hole like glowing orbs.
This project was a collaboration with Emily Webster.
