CYBER IN SECURITIES explores data collection and imaging surveillance practices in the United States, highlighting artists whose work makes visible experiences of tracking and being tracked in a digital age. Revealing the tight collusion between data-collection and interpretation, the exhibition will explore how automation and surveillance systems enhance our ability to see with ever-increasing imaging and data parsing, while fallible biases — in governments and commercial agencies — determine long-term use of our personal information.

Participating artists: Birgit Bachler, Walter Langelaar, Owen Mundy, and Tim Schwartz; Channel TWo (CH2): Adam Trowbridge and Jessica Westbrook, with Jesus Duran; Heather Dewey-Hagborg; Hasan Elahi; The Force of Freedom with Dave Young; Taylor Hokanson; Ricarda McDonald and Donna Szoke; Lexie Mountain; Preemptive Media; David Rokeby; Julia Kim Smith; and WhiteFeather.

WhiteFeather’s multidisciplinary piece, Parent Folder, was included in this high profile group exhibition.
