Get flash to fully experience Pearltrees
Article 12 was the title of my exhibition at Stroom (The Hague, 2008) that fulfilled my commission for the Dutch Secret Service (AIVD). The AIVD has since censored and confiscated some of the works that were on view at Stroom, and later my book Becoming Tarden (Tate Modern, 2009) that I wrote about my experience working with it. I have since incorporated these confiscations as a material of the works.
This webpage is documentation. On www.evidencelocker.net , you can download One Cycle of Memory in the City of L to get daily letters and CCTV video files from Magid's Evidence Locker. In 2004, Jill spent 31 days in Liverpool, during which time she developed a close relationship with Citywatch (Merseyside Police and Liverpool City Council), whose function is citywide video surveillance- the largest system of its kind in England.
ABSTRACT My thesis project consists of producing and wearing a system of self-surveillance that has been subversively inserted into an already existing informational and electronic system.
In her first solo exhibition in an American museum, Jill Magid (b. 1973) continues to explore means of penetrating closed systems of power.

The Surveillance Shoe is a hybridization of surveillance hardware and a pair of high-heeled shoes. A CCD surveillance camera with infrared technology is built into the shoe's design. Due to the fixed position of the camera to the shoe, that leg remains bound within the frame.
