LAB Commission

Hasan Elahi uses Google Street View imagery to interrogate and disorientate our relationship with natural and built environments. In this site-specific commission, Elahi alludes to the camera obscura, one of the oldest types of surveillance technology. His installation interrogates the state’s increasing reliance on public-private partnerships for purposes of surveillance.
