PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Trish Stone's new media artworks challenge corporate culture by inserting her personal narrative into surveillance media. In "Things I Never Say," she physically steps into the frame of San Diego's privately owned publicly accessible webcams, using the surveillance site as an opportunity for performance. Over the course of several weeks, Trish Stone holds signs up in front of the webcam, confessing her darkest thoughts one word at a time to an online audience. She documents the streaming video as stills and re-presents the footage on a networked array of monitors. In this proposed exhibition, she presents documentation of the "Things I Never Say" project and creates a space for audience participation.

 

 
 

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

In the "Things I Never Say" exhibit at ART Produce, Trish Stone uses the model of surveillance technology to create an installation which invites interactivity. Visitors to ART Produce first notice the sidewalk vitrines, displaying documentation of Trish Stone's public perfromances in front of San Diego's public webcams. Upon entering the store front gallery space, the audience finds their own image mirrored back to them via a live webcam, projected onto a screen. Handheld chalkboards are available so that visitors can write messages to the online audience. On the front wall, Stone has created a diagram which maps the flow of data from the performer to the webcam and then to a display off-site. The webcam feed from this installation will be streamed to Casa Familiar as well as to Calit2 at UC San Diego. For ART Produce events such as Ray at Night andNorth Park Arts Tour, the ART Produce garden will be used for screening videos by local artists. The screenings are curated by Trish Stone along the theme of public/private space, and include a range of performances about identity, place, and digital culture.

 

 
 

CURATORIAL STATEMENT

What does it mean to participate in public culture in the digital informaiton age? Public performances as well as private moments are now immediately accessible via social networks and digital downloads. The sharing of personal data is as ubiquitous today as security systems were in the 90s. Like a camera that is constantly recording, we barely notice how information about our age, health, and socio-economic status if passing across the network. We participate in this process by uploading our own content and shaping it for specific audiences. For the "Outdoor Video Screening" at the ART Produce garden, I selected artists whose work addresses the intersection of public space and personal narrative through digital video in imaginative and aesthetically compelling ways.
