In preparation for the 2010 Winter Olympics, surveillance cameras are popping up like mushrooms around the city. A new SFU-sponsored art exhibit asks: what are the social, political and economic implications of all those candid cameras? In cooperation with the Vancouver Public Space Network, the School of Communication will present Surveilling Public Space: Perspectives on Spectacle, Nov. 18-21 at the Interurban Gallery, 1 E. Hastings St., Vancouver. The free show features more than 20 mixed-media installations that explore the increased video surveillance in contemporary society. The exhibit coincides with "The Surveillance Games," an international research workshop Nov 20-21 at the Vancouver campus at Harbour Centre.
