Trevor Paglen: spy on the live visitors of his new exhibition

Art

On September 10, Trevor Paglen opened the gates of his new exhibition at the Pace Gallery in London. Once again, the American artist presents works that highlight the dangers of artificial intelligence. He also imagined a creative device inspired by the technological mutations in a post-quarantine era: the virtual visitors can infiltrate the exhibition through multiple cameras and project their own images on the screens. Numéro spoke with the artist about his work.
