Artist Trevor Paglen's work examines the way information systems and artificial intelligence have created a universe of surveillance for business, law enforcement and the military.
An exhibit of his work, “Trevor Paglen: Sites Unseen,”opens Thursday at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego Downtown monthly free program, Downtown at Sundown.
The exhibit includes more than 100 works of art by Paglen and will be on display through June 2. It originated at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
Paglen, who is also a geographer, an author and a MacArthur Fellowship award winner, joins Midday Edition on Thursday to discuss the exhibit.
