marie sester

stills from marie sester's projection-based installation titled 'exposure'. as marie explains: "this imagery represents the ways in which our culture obsesses with hyper-vigilance, penetration, and control...the x-rayed trucks reveal smuggled items—such as a rolls royce inside a horse trailer, 3 million cigarettes camouflaged in a load of scrap metal, or 2.5 tons of marijuana packed inside 896 rubber bales. the house scanned by laser is located in the east bay hills. colors are unchanged from the source imagery: they are technical codes." see more here.
