A complex piece where Ayumi Suzuki, Akiko Wakabayashi, and I became fascinated with a crappy webcam on the internet called “DonnieCam” showing a view of a street corner in Amsterdam (live 24 hours a day). donniecam.html We wanted to infiltrate its power, use that view as if it were our own stage, and communicate with the big brother(s) watching it. We chose to make daily performances for one week on that street corner, writing enormous messages with chalk communicating with Donnie (and at the same time to all the other viewers that visit the website). “Hi Donnie are you there?” or “I am watching you” for example (the above picture is a compilation of our text).
We then took all the footage of our performances and made our own DonnieCam Website with almost the same look as the original which just looped the recorded video of our graffiti messages on the street. Making it seem like you were looking at what was happening in Amsterdam live but instead just watching our performance over and over again. A way of making our own permanent gallery. Also a way of giving homage to Donnie Cam.
You can check the site we made: donnicam.html
