THE CHASE / PERSECUCIÓN
video installation that has been made in 1999 by recording simultaneously from 2 points of view. One from the cameras of the municipal system of video surveillance of the traffic in Madrid; and the other one from a camera attached to a moto driver who goes through the city in a tour which will describe the same places as those recorded by the video camera of the traffic office. Therefore, it's the same tour from 2 different points of view at the same time.
Madrid is then the protagonist of this chase on its own streets and within its own space. Moreover the simultaneity creates the optical illusion of direct and live transimission.
The video installation has been exhibited in 1999 at "Control-Indexing". Arquería de Nuevos Ministerios. Ministerio de Fomento. Madrid, Spain
