    The work of Julia Scher, which first appeared in the 1980s, is noteworthy for its systematic use of surveillance techniques, particularly CCTV. Scher’s technical background provided her with in-depth knowledge of a range of surveillance systems. She worked at a well-known security firm for a period of time before setting up her own company, Safe and Secure Productions.

    For our Spotlight this month we present Julia Scher's Security Landscape of the Year, 2002.


    Julia Scher’s Security Landscape of the Year consists of a pink foam board connected to a surveillance camera and a small monitor. The camera is directed at what is happening in front of the artwork and transmits it to the monitor: When standing in front of the work, viewers can watch themselves in the monitor.
