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
