HASAN ELAHI

ERDL+, 2017, 58 x 143”. Pigment print

Elahi’s self-surveillance work is often described as “hiding in plain sight” and plays with the concept of camouflage. In ERDL+, thirteen panels of camouflage patterns used by the US military are displayed side by side as a timeline showing the transition from the analog to the digital, from 1948 to the present. The video Continuum is placed next to ERDL+ depicting thousands of images scroll side by side in seven panels mimicking the pattern of the Emergency Broadcasting System, that was intended to warn the public in case of a nuclear attack during the Cold War.
