The work was developed and performed with thirty volunteers drawn from Brunels staff, students and local residents. Performers followed a simple rule based analogue walk, to create a pattern that is only seen from above by Brunels onsite CCTV monitoring system. Coy edited the captured CCTV into a collage pedestrian movement combining the aesthetics of digital swarm and crowd simulation modelling with contemporary surveillance technologies and architectures.
