Reception: Thursday, July 7, 2016, 3-4PM
Jeff Hazelden's Vile Maxim consists of a series of images, exploring ways people may respond to government programs and invasion of privacy. Hazelden is interested in the moment when an individual fully comprehends the extent in which their lives are being recorded and stored. By using large panes of glass, mirrors, and light, the artists achieves significant effects in composition and imagery, visually transforming the space. Hazelden uses materials and processes that relate to the subject of surveillance including manipulation of light through glass and mirrors.
