INVISIBLE (2014)
 

Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Exhibited in Panopticon February 13 - July 25 
By Rebecca Maksym, Curator of Exhibitions



Heather Dewey-Hagborg is a transdisciplinary artist whose work often takes form as research and critical practice to investigate relationships between scientific inquiry and cultural artifice. For her projects Invisible (2014) and DNA Spoofing (2013), Dewey-Hagborg employs biometrics - biological identifiers of a person's behaviors, movements, and characteristics - to engage issues of genetic surveillance. The featured piece above, Invisible, plays with concepts of genetic privacy by turning paranoia into a commodity.
