Marcos Zotes: CCTV/Creative Control

    CCTV/Creative Control seeks to question the oppressive mechanisms and discourses implemented in the city through the temporary appropriation of public space. The intervention consists of a video projection displaying an over-sized eye onto the lower surface of the 10-storey-hight Milton Street water tower in Brooklyn, New York. Still the highest point in the area, until it is dwarfed by new gentrification plans, the water tower exists as a relic of the neighbourhood's industrial past. The intervention temporarily transforms this iconic landmark into a discernible CCTV tower, raising questions of private control over public space in the urban context.

    CCTV/Creative Control was exhibited as part of Nuit Blanche: Bring to Light New York 2011 in Brooklyn, New York.

    Marcos Zotes is an architect/artist who lives and works in New York.
