dead end job was created using a surveillance camera system connected to a digital video mixer. Using the movement of the urban environment surrounding the surveillance system as the launching point the video mixer helps move the images into a blurry dreamscape. Feedback and colorization techniques turn buildings into rivers of architectural shapes as the city is transformed to an abstract dream world. The title refers to the context within which the work was created. The surveillance camera system used belonged to the arts center in downtown Ottawa where I worked at the reception. The video was created during my work hours.
