PRIVACYApril 11, 2013
Stuff.co.nz reports how an art exhibit at the Parson New School for Design in New York City entitled the “Public Private” is showcasing what happens when technology, privacy and art collide. The exhibit contains pieces such as photos from unsuspecting people’s social media profiles that were obtained through a software glitch and life-size cutouts of individuals captured through Google’s Street View. The show’s curator maintains that the exhibit is not meant to be a comment on social media and privacy but is intended to make visitors think about the lines that do or do not exist between the two.
