After the attacks of 9/11, an erroneous tip led to an intensive FBI investigation of Hasan Elahi (he/him/his). It prompted the artist to create Tracking Transience (2003), which explores what it means to live in a state of constant surveillance. Elahi’s projects dealing with surveillance, privacy, migration, citizenship, and the challenges of borders have been presented at SITE Santa Fe, NM; Centre Pompidou, Paris, France; and the Sundance Film Festival, among other venues. He is Professor and Director of the School of Art at George Mason University.
