SMILE – You Are Being RECORDED




Nighttime. Walking along when something in the corner of my eye grabs my attention. A black and white video monitor in someone’s front window, facing towards the sidewalk. In another window a sign informs me that I’m being recorded.

This is what it has come to. To protect his property a Plattsburgh resident has to install a home surveillance system to keep an eye on things during the hours of darkness.

So if I walk by this particular house, I’ll be recorded. OK, fine by me.

I’ll just make my image of me being imaged. I can’t see into the residence. I don’t want to. I just want to document how acts of vandalism and break-ins around the city have put some people on edge.

Maybe home surveillance systems will be popping up all over like satellite TV dishes.

The wave of the future.
