Multiples & Give-Aways

Year: 2010

Medium: Various (embroidered crests, printed buttons, stickers)

Description: When the fictional company ‘Pinhole Security Systems’ mounted its campaign ‘Security Camera Obscura’ to monitor and report back on the 2010 Contact Festival of Photography in Toronto, an important part of their activities involved community education and outreach which included distribution of these buttons and stickers to promote the core value “For Your Security You Are Not Being Recorded.”

This campaign was built upon the active, socially engaged presence of the field operative/artist outside of events with a large and highly mobile camera obscura, shaped like a security camera. This unit allowed passersby to kneel and look inside the chamber of the Security Camera Obscura to view the pinhole produced image of the surroundings outside.
