Celine Siani Djiakoua has set up a weblog for her Longhouse Action Research commission in Stoke-on-Trent, and has started looking at empty shops in Longton

“In my practice, I have started to challenge the use of the video camera by exploring the physical limits of its frame through performances. With the Action Research Project, I would like to explore the use of projectors, surveillance cameras, video cameras, TV monitors and different types of screens to offer interactive live video installations involving passing pedestrians. The piece would be shown through the window of an empty shop.”
