Description

A live art installation that investigates the ways we share personal information in the public sphere. A ‘scientist’ offered visitors the opportunity to be involved in an ‘experiment’ by viewing an original video while wearing an eye-tracking device. The work offers a recursively playful performance of faith in ‘science’ that troubles a distinction between the apparently private experience of viewing art with the apparently public experience of being surveilled, exploring the notion that negotiating ‘informed consent’ is associated with loss of power and knowledge.

Additional Information

Performed at the Archive Room, Bunbury Regional Art Galleries [BRAG], Bunbury, Western Australia from 2 - 28 March 2016.
