WATCHES, a public artwork project for the NIGHTLIGHTS initiative, invites members of the public to view a large-scale surveillance panel and monitor CCTV footage of the Wagga Wagga at night. The artwork attempts to capture and reflect upon the historical and contemporary perceptions of an increased surveillance culture within our communities. Viewers have the unique experience of watching the city from the comfort of the atmospheric Wollundry Lagoon and explores a wide-range of responses on how we as individuals and a society feel about security. WATCHES has been carefully staged by local artist Andrew Hagan and captures more than an observer might first see. 5 hours with timecode / 4 minutes (loop) of high-definition video panels was produced exclusively for the 50m x 8m screen in making the Wagga Wagga Christmas 2015 program.
