Before lockdown came into effect on 23 March in the UK, I had been scheduled to perform a new set called ‘All eyes on me’. The work is about social movement under the gaze of surveillance, and the overlapping aesthetics between nightlife and algorithmic tracking technologies. The club being a space of social escape, subversion and catharsis, of sensory lighting and visuals arousing our senses and desires. The aesthetics of surveillance incidentally mimicking that same experience with colourful abstract patterning, flowing lines and warped geometries, but serving to collect information that work towards delimiting movement.
