Behind the scenes

The man stands under the surveillance cameras spread around San Francisco. He announces on Craigslist, as well as Grindr and Scruff, the two most famous geo-locational mobile apps for gay men to meet and hook up, that he is waiting for a kiss. He waits for 30 minutes and leaves the site. The wait is mapped by a pinhole camera; its exposure relative to the time spent.

A detective that the man meets on one of the apps is invited to look at the photos and curate them as he sees a narrative unfolding. 

Performance, installation.
