Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

To act the role of a security guard and guide for the Fallen eight installation this Autumn at Brunel University. The installation mimics the aesthetics of Surveillance. You will be ensuring that staff, student and public get access to see work. This is an acting / performance role not a security role.

Phil Coy’s Fallen eight utilises Brunel University’s five-hundred + CCTV cameras to create a new video installation. The work will be installed within an onsite security cabin adjacent to the rear entrance of Brunels iconic Lecture Centre.

Phil Coy’s Fallen eight was developed with thirty volunteers drawn from Brunels staff, students and local residents. Together they followed a simple rule based analogue walk, to create a pattern that is only seen from above by Brunels onsite CCTV monitoring system.

Coy has edited the captured CCTV into a collage of pedestrian movement combing the aesthetics of digital swarm and crowd modelling with contemporary surveillance technologies and architectures.
