The Book of Everyday Instruction, Chapter Two: Things I’ve seen people do lately
Things I’ve seen people do lately is an investigation of the pair-relationship inherent to voyeurism: what does it mean to be a pair when only the watcher knows that the relationship exists?
The materials produced for Things I’ve seen people do lately consist of four interconnected parts: a dual-channel video sculpture and associated text-based poster, a collection of 61 screenshots from private surveillance streams throughout the world, 16 “blank” prints with imaginative text labels, and a participatory voyeurism exercise.
Things I’ve seen people do lately debuted as a solo exhibit at Salisbury University’s Art Gallery in October 2015. All exhibition materials were produced in residence at Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Workspace program.
