Julia Scher's most recent installation piece, Predictive Engineering2, is based on a previous installation featured in the 1993 exhibition Thresholds and Enclosures presented in SFMOMA's former location. Organized by SFMOMA curator of media arts Robert R. Riley, the current installation recreates the ambiance of image, audio, and spoken word narrative of the original interactive surveillance piece, but advances the artwork using sophisticated computer-controlled retrieval devices and on-site cameras to emphasize and further articulate the Museum building observed as a real-time surveillance event.
This exhibition is part of the Museum's New Work series, which features recent or commissioned work by both younger and established artists. The New Work series is made possible by the Collectors Forum, an auxiliary of SFMOMA. Special thanks to Pioneer New Media Technology for equipment support and to Zuma Digital for production support.
