Forum Lounge: James Gilbert: Privacy is Dead Because We Said So
Paseo Nuevo Mall Upper Arts Terrace
Santa Barbara, CA 93101
Artist James Gilbert will set up a temporary sewing shop in the CAF gallery and sew several hundred real size pairs of unique clear industrial plastic see-through underpants, which will accumulate in huge sculptural piles around him. The accumulative sculptures (representing media information) become more present throughout the performance. This accumulative performance project addresses ideas of privacy, anonymity, and identity in relationship to the huge amounts of intimate personal information posted daily on Facebook, YouTube, Google and other mass media.
