Sky Burial | Surveilled, video still/Performance, Roof of Andrew Freedman Home, South Bronx. 6min loop, 2014.

As commentary on the constant helicopter surveillance of communities of color, Sky Burial | Surveilled melds the ancient Buddhist burial practice with the concept of the death of privacy, solace, and trust of government. The constant cannibalization of bearing witness to tragedy while the Body of Community is being picked apart through the ever-watchful eyes of the surveillance state.
