CCTV East (Close Circuit TV East) touches themes of freedom, surveillance and privacy. The holes in the Berlin Wall serve as camera views that switch through eight different angles, looking from the west to the east part of Berlin. As the views change, a girl in a red jacket appears, passing by, stopping and looking at the viewer. She is an ordinary person who wants to escape and change her life. The uneasiness of surveillance and loss of privacy makes people vulnerable and empty. This work focuses on individuals, whose freedom is affected by government decisions and political games.
