RSG + MTAA’s GMCEM (2002)

posted at 12:52 GMT by M.River in /news/mriver

I went over to Eyebeam on Monday to install GMCEM as part of RSG’s Carnivore section of the 10 Year Anniversary show (part 1 of 3). Looks like it will be a good show. Sounds like it opens on Thursday.

The Gordon Matta-Clark Encryption Method (GMCEM)

In fall of 2002, RSG gathered 500 printed pages (1 ream) of data from MTAA using the Carnivore client installed at the Eyebeam’s studios. Each 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper was then encrypted by tearing each sheet of paper in half and then sealing the two stacks within a plexi glass display. This lo-fi data encryption attempts to fuse the minimal aesthetics of Gordon Matta-Clark’s cut paper stacks from the 70’s with Patriot Act surveillance of the early 00’s.

Here is a photo of the top of the GMCEM on the studio floor. I hope to get a good install shot when the show opens. permanent link to this post
