An exhibition by four Bay Area artists delving into the contradictions of everyday surveillance.
Diana Stapleton’s video work hovers at the disjunct where the viewer identifies the encounter as one of surveillance, and wherein they are unwittingly positioned as voyeur, and by extension also as suspect.
Jamie Emerick’s installation of trees is a metaphor for a paradox; on the one hand desire for universal easy connections to people and information and on the other fear of being watched by unknown persons or entities.
Ben Marlowe invites us into an installation where personal autonomy disintegrates, narratives are intentionally obfuscated, and social implications of privacy are blurred.
Sara Dykstra conceals, reveals, and alters the information about the objects in her still-lifes, which function as windows into an illusory space.
