Millie Chen

Watcher is a multi-building video installation.
Viewed on the windows of a series of houses, some of which Chen inhabited during childhood, images from her memories of growing up on D'Arcy merge with imagined stories that have occurred behind the buildings' facades over the course of the area's complex history; fact is peppered with fiction. As viewers walk from house to house, they become implicated as voyeurs in the human compulsion to not mind our own business.

In association with the residents of D’Arcy Street.
