For the month of November, Toby
Kaufmann-Buhler is exploring the meaning of
surveillance in the contemporary world.  He has
transformed the Little Monroe Gallery with a light
installation that glows like a beacon at dusk and
at night.

From Toby Kaufmann-Buhler:

What does surveillance mean in the personal
and everyday?  As part of the larger project
“Self-Surveillance,” this work takes the dual
form of a sculptural family “photo album,”
using super-8 film to sample fragments of
text from the published work of close and
distant family members; it also takes the
form of an abstract model for a speculative
surveillance technique, which foregrounds
some of the deficiencies of mass surveillance
as we know it: it is fragmented, subjective
and opaque.
