Elahi Limbo

by Adam Kenner

Playing with time and tools, Hasan Elahi is able to simultaneously live a life under surveillance and provide a powerful artistic message about that experience. Discuss Hasan's decision to provide MUCH more information than he was asked to provide. Does the process of surveillance change when the subject makes every aspect of his life public?
