Series taken from an 8 hour work shift of Kitty, an email support representative who works at home. The first of an ongoing project of Series Photography, "Homebased", documenting the entire shift of homebased online employees through a web camera.
Through the use of its voyeuristic nature, the web camera captures the subject's growing indifference towards the camera as she starts forgetting that she is being watched by way of random screen captures and webcam images required by the employer to make sure employees are working during their shift.
Having experienced working as a homebased employee myself, I wanted the project to be an exploration of a profound process that breaks the boundaries between home, office and the virtual world; questioning the idea of privacy & comfort zone, the convenience it provides as well as one's behavior when being looked at.
