Rafael Lozano-Hemmer and the Art of Surveillance

In the summer 2010 issue of Representations, an article by Kriss Ravetto-Biagioli entitled “Shadowed by Images: Rafael Lozano-Hemmer and the Art of Surveillance”:

The ungrounding of subjectivity does not necessarily point to the subjects’ own absence or lack of wholeness, nor to its own possible obsolescence. Rather, it points to the disjuncture between recognizing and reacting to the fact that we are being followed (by images, interfaces, and tracking devices), and recognizing and reacting to the fact that these devices already anticipate our movements, desires, and trajectories.
