The Interactive Surveillance installation combines Manning’s digital paintings of immigrant shadows crossing the border, executed with symTone (Celine Latulipe’s photo-editing software). Using two wireless gyrsocopic mice, one in each hand, the participant activates surveillance target lenses to conduct surveillance of immigrants as they cross the border from Mexico into the US, and making us all complicitious with this process.  If we are all immigrants, we are also all border guards.
