About This Event

Thousand Little Brothers is the latest installation by Hasan Elahi. A former subject of an intensive FBI investigation post 9/11, Hasan Elahi developed tracker to disclose every bit of information about him. The project is comprised of over 50,000 images collected over a year period along with screenshots of his financial data, communications records, and transportation logs.

This multimedia exhibition builds on a series of installations, performances, and websites that use Elahi’s self-surveillance to critique contemporary investigative techniques. A second innovation in this work is its embrace of surveillance for its subject’s own protection; Elahi has protected himself from unwanted scrutiny by making his entire life and whereabouts publicly accessible.

Elahi's work examines issues of surveillance, simulated time, transport systems, and borders. The Thousand Little Brothers exhibit employs the use of multiple cameras, televisions, and audio - immersing the viewers' pseudo-voyeuristic behaviors and observational obsessions. Elahi also draws inspiration from each space that he exhibits in. MAP is located in a highly touristic area of Baltimore and is also adjacent to the Baltimore Police Department and "The Block," Baltimore's red light district. This location will play a role in the exhibition outcome.
