Andy Deck on Surveillance Culture, Fri May 23 9:30-1:20 Raitt 221

May 20 2014

NYC-based artist Andy Deck will lead seminar discussion in Prof Shanken's DX490 Surveillance Culture on Friday, May 23 from 9:30am - 1:20pm.  Deck's work Glyphiti (2001) is featured in Shanken's Art and Electronic Media and his work Screening Circle (2006) was commissioned by the Whitney Artport and the Tate Online. Deck will talk about his recent work exploring facial recognition algorithms, particularly with respect to false recognition and false inference. He may also frame issues including drones, satellite imagery, infowar, and privacy/anonymity in the context of prior works, such as Ceci n'est pas un mensonge (a response to Colin Powell's caption-laden satellite photography presented at the U.N.) and Remote Control.

The seminar will be open to the public but seating is limited.
