Just amazing; behind glass walls the are some screens with videos, images and messages, and you can manage it with some control buttons. But last one is very peculiar; apparently nothing happens when you press the button, but in a building in the other side of the street in one windown an actor or actress activates whenever you press the button. But you have to realize it! On the window messages are displayed, and other actions take place, including the actor taking photographs of people that take photographs. Really weird.

CAMP creates a metaphor for systems of participation and support, from the access to electricity—which is now privately owned almost everywhere across the globe—to digital communication and the immanent possibilities of manipulation.

CAMP is an interdisciplinary studio currently made up of Shaina Anand, Ashok Sukumaran, Zinnia Ambapardiwala, Simpreet Singh, and other actors. It was founded in 2007 and continuously regroups for specific projects. Within the context of long-term projects, the group has developed a range of investigative, cultural initiatives for the twenty-first century. CAMP makes use of various media—CCTV, electricity, archives; many of its projects are characterized by an affinity for technological processes.
