Unknown Unknowns - Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins - May 12 to June 19, 2011
Elora Centre for the Arts - reception Thursday, May 12 at 7pm
Ed Video Gallery - reception Friday, May 13 at 7pm
Ed Video and the Elora Centre for the Arts present 'Unknown Unknowns', a two gallery trans-institutional installation by Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins.
Continuing with the themes of abstraction and negation inherent in their Total Disinformation Awareness series, Marman and Borins venture into a simulation of the hermetic aesthetics of internet facilities on an architectural level at Ed Video. In Elora these themes are developed concurrently, yet play out as a cryptic store-house of art-making strategies. Massive databases are protected from and altered by the viewer.
High security. Surveillance. Indeterminate information.
