Interactive Online Webcam Project
by Esther Hunziker, 2013

"In the end, we are self-perceiving, self-inventing, locked-in mirages, that are little miracles of self-reference."
Douglas Hofstadter, I Am a Strange Loop

"With her work Loop Esther Hunziker researches the webcam’s function as a surveillance medium and an instrument for control freaks. To this end she implements a feedback configuration in which the webcam becomes an observer of itself. The webcam, as the symptom of a surveillance deployment which is chronically aligned to turning its gaze outwards, is therewith robbed of its actual function. This reversal provides insights into the hidden world of digital real-time images."
