Trust (trusting surveillance cameras)

Brief description

In the performance the artist "Jill" calls the police and asks him to lead her trough the city with closed eyes. The police directs her through the city using  a network of surveillance cameras observing what is happening in the surrounding of the artist. The police zooms and pans, controlling both the cameras and giving directions to the artist. In this intimate relationship mediated by surveillance cameras the artist puts her trust in the officer to guide her through busy streets.
