When Rob Spence lost his eye, some kind and clever engineers helped him to build a wireless videocamera. Ever since then he has heard two things. 1. That's so cool! & 2. That is so creepy! As a filmmaker with a camera eye Rob is uniquely positioned to explore the intersection of privacy, video-power, cybernetics, and film language.
Speakers:Rob Spence - One eyed filmmaker with a prosthetic eye
Rob Spence (robspence.tv) is a filmmaker who lost an eye. He decided the thing to do is get a video camera eye. Today he has two prosthetic eyes with wireless video cameras inside - one that glows red, and another that looks human. He and his team of engineers received a Time Magazine Best Inventions of the year award for their efforts. Rob works as a director and producer in Toronto, Canada and has had his work on Discovery, The CBC (Canadian Broadcast Corporation), Vision, and Space TV. His cult hit documentary film Let’s All Hate Toronto was a special presentation at Hot Docs film festival.
