CVaCCTvCA stands for Charlottesville, Virginia Closed-Circuit Television Camera Archive - a real mouthful. As the infamous "Unite the Right" rally slips ever further into the pages of history, this project documents a bloom of security cameras in and around the area where neo-Confederates and counter-protestors were kettled together by the police. Security cameras construct the space beneath them, establishing behavioral norms and asserting ownership. CVaCCTvCA records these rhetorical flourishes and pairs them with a personal narrative of documented embarrassment.
