No Innocence Under Surveillance

This work was started in response to the ever-increasing erosion of our humanity and personal independence by sophisitcated surveillance tools built by Silicon Valley for global corporations. That protest was put in perspective by the results of the 2016 presidential election. It brought us rule by another set of ultra-rich, bouyed by millions of violent hating voices and actors who threaten each of us and who, with their deafening cries, have reached in and ripped out the foundations of the American way of life using the powerful American act -- the vote. Oddly, Silicon Valley is shocked and dismayed by the rise of this regime even as they, "the elite", are building surveillance tools that destroy our humanity as surely as any hating rioters would.

This work is currently on display at Merchants of Reality
