Total Disinformation Awareness

Nov 09, 2010
Relinquishing privacy for safety is a slippery slope. In Total Disinformation Awareness, a Toronto-based collaborative made up of Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins takes on Total Information Awareness—now called Terrorism Information Awareness—the Pentagon’s frightfully Orwellian initiative purportedly established to prevent terror by compromising privacy.

The exhibition of installation, sculpture, painting and works on paper examines both the openness of information and its concealment.

“It relates to what’s happening to consciousness in an age where we’re so inherently linked to technological systems of support,” Borins tells SFR. “Information that supposedly keeps us safe, we don’t know who has that information or what purposes it’s being used for.”

Watch as “Google”—a video surveillance and electronic art installation that looks like big googly eyes—watches you make your way around the gallery. Reconsider digitized media as works by artist Frank Stella are rendered as a pixilated diptych. Certainly don’t tell anyone where you live.

Aftermath: reactions to cataclysm and evolution

Friday, Oct 09, 2015
Freeform Art Space is pleased to present the first solo show of Kelly Eckel’s work in Santa Fe, curated by Aimee Gwynne Franklyn. Eckel’s vision is inspired by her reactions to violence, transformation, societal narcissism, and the fractiousness of the natural world. Through an exacting process, she transposes her observations using the media of photography, printmaking, and drawing. Her representations of evolution challenge our traditional ideas of “progress” and how we develop as a species.
