Carry On

About The Work

Paranoia is the state of the world. Propelled by our media, we have re-assumed our place in the jungle, afraid of the invisible predator all around us. Constantly watching and watched, what is it that we look for?

Consisting of six vintage suitcases, Carry On explores paranoia. Using robotic arms fitted with micro-cameras and black and white LCD screens, the suitcases in Carry On busy themselves with the task of surveying their surroundings. Lacking image analysis of any kind or other sensory capability, these suitcases blindly look about, never understanding what they see.

Materials: Vintage suitcases, LCD screens, motors, custom electronics
