Surveillance Blind


Curated by Nate Larson for the Goethe Institut Washington
September 14 - December 6, 2015


As technology has evolved, so have our fundamental ways of understanding the world. The world has become about more than our physical senses – data and information flow around us and shape our understandings of the world and also the way that the world understands us. We are more connected than ever, through online platforms and digital devices, yet psychologists are simultaneously reporting higher instances of loneliness than ever before. This paradox of connection raises new and urgent questions about our relationships with one another. The artists in this exhibition probe the nature of our data-driven surveillance culture and push the boundaries of our new cultural norms.
