Future Scapes: A Family Diorama Workshop

What will the view from your window look like in 50 years? In this family workshop, we will be creating tunnel books—or dioramas that fold flat.  Children will be asked to imagine looking out a window in the future. We will then use collage materials to create miniature models of the worlds they’ve envisioned. In conjunction with the exhibition Feel Big Live Small.

EXHIBITION OPENING: Profiled: Surveillance of a Sharing Society
PUBLIC CONVERSATION: Data Gathering (more info)
organized by Mary Coyne

Despite opposition to the post-Patriot Act surveillance programs adopted by government agencies, individuals continue to engage with social media platforms, sharing personal information online. Profiled observes the dichotomy between an over-sharing society and government and military secrets.

Unsolicited Proposal Program Winner

Moderated by Mary Coyne, Data Gathering: A Public Conversation is an opening day conversation between artists Paolo Cirico, Jenny Odell, Jens Sundheim, and Open Society Foundation curator Yukiko Yamagata. The panelists will reflect on how their practices have responded to and emerged from the pervasive culture of surveillance and will meditate on the recent global societal shift of being constantly observed.

Screening of the film InContact by Ann Oren

Filmed entirely through the InContact network, iPhones, and surveillance cameras, InContact explores levels of spectatorship and exhibitionism in our everyday life, when everyone is both a viewer and a performer and the unclear moment when we shift from being involved friends to being performers and audiences. The screening will be followed by a brief Q & A session with Oren.
