From the window of my apartment I was able to follow the construction, in all its stages, of an office building in the yard of a police station in Zagreb. I dealt with artistic poetics while the site was being prepared, granting special attention to surveillance cameras or voyeurism in the name of state institutions. For ‘safety reasons’, more and more public and private spaces in a city are being placed under surveillance nowadays. One more secretly placed camera, turned towards a repressive institution should not disturb the equilibrium in my city.
