For this exhibition, I gathered artists that have all dealt with privacy in one way or another through their work. There’s no better time than now to deal with the topic of privacy in the age of technology; everyone feels they have the inalienable right to privacy but constantly surrender that right to follow with technological trends. The promise of modern convenience and an easier way to handle daily life overshadows the protection of our own privacy and well-being. For this reason, I titled the exhibition Privately Public. The title plays off the idea of how people think that they interact with and through secure methods, yet nothing we do is truly private.
A running motif throughout the experience is the use of envelope security patterns I sourced from collected mail. These appear on various collateral, from the book divider pages to the exhibition poster and even the exhibition wall supergraphics.
