Please Stare is a unique public art project presented by Neutral Ground and Soil Digital Media Suite.
Throughout Regina and Saskatoon silent video art has been surreptitiously planted amongst digital billboards. Following the same format as—and placed amongst—other advertisements, these videos comment on the nature of advertisement and public visual space. The Artists in Please Stare draw parallels between adculture and artistic production by playfully adopting and critiquing the psychosocial aesthetics of the ad.
Featuring seven of Canada’s most engaging video artists:
Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins
