This project was done with the attempt to bring two systems (a fashion garment and photography) closer to each
other by merging the two mediums in the form of a 'spectator'. Photographs were taken as part of the visual
research paper: 'The two-fold of fashion behaviour' and under surveillance of consumer culture. Using a custom
made felt vest with a built-in analogue camera, I wanted to 'look' at people and capture stills from a perspective
other than the eye.

The device was used as concise surveillance method, in different social and store demographics in Amsterdam and Paris.
