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.
