Speak of the Devil
at Art League Houston, Houston TX 2017
“Speak of the Devil” is a modular installation consisting of 300 security motion sensor cameras constructed on site in relationship to the exhibition space. With only one or more of the cameras functioning viewers become participants as they are photographed entering the space. This picture is printed and can be pinned to bulletin boards along with other documented visitors or shredded to erase any evidence of the visit. This installation creates questions concerning our daily lives and how we interact knowingly or unknowingly with an ever increasing surveillance state. The absurd nature creates an unnerving but humorous experience as a way to ease the viewers into this subject. “Speak of the Devil” can be modified to fit any space.
