Paintings using CCTV footage and traffic cameras as sources by Houston-based artist William Betts. The low-res, pixelated images are a nod to world in which we are constantly being watched by mechanical eyes and are oblivious to them. Betts attempts to address this complacency through a series of paintings that looks at surveillance footage as a collection of data, which he manipulates to arrive at the result he wants. Having worked in the software industry previously, he uses a CNC printer to create his pixel paintings. The images are processed by the machine converting the pixels into dots of acrylic paint, turning the act of painting into a mechanized process.
