Staring at the World through a Hole is a video-loop consisting of found material/documentation of «PistolCam,» which is a video camera to mount on the gun, so that it starts recording when one draws the gun. This is a device now used by the American police in some states in USA. To problematize this one can just think what the Youtube-generation can use this for.
The Camera and the Gun
I think of myself as a part of a generation that was brought up during the first Gulf ware. Two important things happened: We got to know of technological precision weapons, with the use of cameras mounted on the rockets and we watched CNN`s coverage of the war 24 hours a day.
When I started my research on the connections between the camera and the gun, I found out that when constructing the first cameras they used several things from the gun. For example the camera-brand «Canon» and one says «to shoot» with a camera.
