"‘Whose Eyes’ focuses on the deterioration of collective moral standards. Yet as a video artwork, Tan Tan’s piece foregrounds more explicitly the visual properties of surveillance videos and their effect on perceptions of public space. The direct referential value of the moving image gives way to a mediatised temporal and spatial indexicality that challenges the ethical efficacy of reassemblage."
