"In DOT Cam, the horizon line is utilized as an epistemological motif as a way to re-render images of power in the form of New York State Department of Transportation (DOT) infrared traffic security cameras. Using the concept of “bad” algorithms, or algorithms that work to break action, these real-time images of control are subverted by removing the cars observed, rendering them unusable and thus producing a form of countersurviellance. Using traditional landscape composition techniques, moving images are algorithmically re-rendered to present the viewer not with an image of the drivers below, but with an image of the machine eye itself, gazing upon an open sky." - Rebecca Uliasz
