Artist visited the location where the surveillance cameras implanted and captured the criminal suspects one year after Boston Marathon bombing. He filmed several footage of street scenes from the exact angles of the original surveillance cameras. Continually, passers-by who appeared in terrorist suspect characters (wearing a hat) were circled in the video.  

When the historical accident was relocated in a mundane scene, everyone is referenced according to conditions in a state of monitoring context. This work reveals how people is categorised with the method of monitor, public gain the security assurance but unconsciously exchange collective privacy.  

We’re being monitored right now.
Were we all suspected?
