Deadline: August 31st
Surveillance is a direct influence on our lives that we cannot ignore. With technology seemingly increasing its presence in our daily activities via data collection, censorship, and abuse of authoritative power, the conversation around surveillance has equally increased. Methods of surveillance are also conducted by ourselves. We are in a constant state of monitoring others and our sculpted self perceptions on various social media platforms. What forms are acceptable and which are not?
For this October show at Social Policy in downtown San Jose, we are looking for artists’ interpretations of surveillance. While typically surrounded by negative critical discussions, is it one that can also be associated with unexpected beauty? We are open to all forms of medium, including but not limited to video, still images, sculpture, interactive works and so forth. Please email email@example.com for inquiries and submissions. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
