video, and surveillance as tools to document her own life experiences making connections between

Jessamyn Lovell Statement

Remnants from an Archive of Surveillance

Project Statement

I use surveillance in various forms as an integral part of my artistic practice. From 2007-

2010 I photographed my estranged father for the book and exhibition No Trespassing and from

2011-2014 I surreptitiously photographed the woman who stole my identity for the book and

exhibition Dear Erin Hart,. In early 2016 I discovered that as a result of the investigative work I

did for these projects I had 3,000 of the 6,000 hours needed to apply for a private investigator’s

license in the state of New Mexico. For The P.I. Project I have been training to be a private

investigator putting in as many hours as I need to in order to apply for the license by the end of

2017. The P.I. Project is a conceptually driven, multifaceted art project that uses surveillance,

photography, performance, and investigation to reveal parallels between private investigation and

art. In pursuit of this ambitious undertaking I have taken thousands of photographs using many

different cameras. While some of theses images document the process of becoming a private

investigator directly or frame the narratives of my other projects, the collection of images I draw

from for Remnants from an Archive of Surveillance are much more subtle and obscured views. The

photographs in this ongoing series range from carefully composed and exposed photographs taken

on film to snapshots taken quickly with my phone or Polaroid camera. The spectrum reflects the

different tools needed for the range of investigative work and reveal evidence of my perpetual

search for the potential beauty in even the most mundane activity or within a complex

investigation.
