The aim of Paula Albuquerque’s research is to understand how she can use a medium that is simultaneously an oppressive means of control and a filming device with aesthetic potential. It results from an art project in which she used webcam footage to make experimental films and installations. She explores a networked form of filmmaking that contributes to the doubling of its subject by constantly archiving audiovisual documentation of city life.
