ABOUT THIS BOOK
All the world’s a stage—literally so, given the ubiquitous presence of webcams recording daily life in cities. This footage, allegedly documentary, recreates cities as cinematic environments as people interact with the multitudes of cameras and screens around them. Paula Albuquerque’s original research and experimental films, presented in this groundbreaking book, expose fictionalizing elements in archival webcams and explore video surveillance as an urban condition that influences both perceptions of the past and visions of the future.
