This is eyes of Laura's surveillance web cam and street culture blog
Hello, I am a security guard in Vancouver at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
Through my work, I have access to a lot of security cameras. I hacked a way to put one of these online here on my Website. It's a live Webcam and online camera control system connected to a robocam and gives a live video stream. It's illegal for me to give you access to the camera. But, I want you to see for yourself. There's some pretty strange things that go on. I have pictures and video images that I record from the surveillence camera, but there's also other media, sound and images, that I come across or that people send me.
I love surveillance.
If you read my journal (it's a blog) then you'll find film noir stories or a mystery or detective narrative that may be real or fiction. Sort of like Blowup, the story by Corazar. Other movie references would be The Conversation, starring Gene Hackman who records audio in it, The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, or M a film by the German director Fritz Lang.
I watch the street culture in downtown Vancouver.
Skateboarding kids, cool fashion and dresses, photographers, dogs, but also crazies or eccentric people making sculpture or street theatre and art or sidewalk writing. I like watching and taking pictures of strange people and reporting what I see. There are mysterious things like thefts and kissing and crazies or psycho people and sex in bushes. But remember this is all illicit and voyeuristic and illegal.
Remember, I am putting my job on the line so you can see this stuff.
