Here’s Looking at You: Research & Development

Here’s Looking at You: R&D (HLY) took place throughout 2021. A first stage R&D project provided time & resources to test the feasibility of delivering & presenting HLY as an artwork. The R&D phase was designed to explore technical possibilities, physical & geographical requirements & challenges, whilst identifying, negotiating with & recruiting potential collaborating artists curators and venues. It would hopefully point to the size of the challenge ahead if such a visual poetry machine as my imagination was suggesting could be built and if so, how and what would this look like?

‘Here’s Looking at You’ R&D was made up of four main elements:

  • Researching and developing a model for a digital platform for the creative use of CCTV
  • A residency with a group of artists exploring CCTV and the possibilities for a new creative approach and platform.
  • A series of one-to-one professional development sessions for artists
  • Public presentation of ideas and idease/notions generated through the process


Some of the outcomes from the HLY R&D phase to date include:

The current status of the project is that I am developing drawings, models and concepts for what I call a visual poetry machine; a hybrid of video surveillance, public sculpture and semi-autonomous auto editing manifest as a continuous film broadcast. Hopefully somewhere in conversations, ideas and designs there will be an opportunity at some point in the near future to present a new artwork that grows from the notion and position of a more chaotic but democratic use of the rapidly changing idea of the ubiquitous Closed Circuit Television.

‘Here’s Looking at You’ R&D is supported by National Lottery Funding through Arts Council England. My thanks to Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Disability Arts Online for their continuing support.
