“The building rules the city,” says Jeff Wall, characterizing the pinnacle of power and dominance as surveilling the world from behind impenetrable mirrored glass. It is the simulation of transparency. And between the basement and the penthouse lies the vast majority of the working world. Surveillance as a form of social oppression affects everyone this side of the architectural apex. This is a narrative series housed in the social dynamics we are all trapped in. The physicality of the lens is integral here, not just as a tool for producing the work, but as a threshold, a border of glass where oppressor and oppressed meet; a brittle boundary forced to manage powerful social pressures.
