Tova Carlin’s Security Wall Paper

The New York-based Tova Carlin’s recent show at the 179 Canal project space, titled, A–>D–>A, meaning converting information from analog to digital and back again, no doubt a nod to the weird algorithms that generate these patterns. 179 Canal describes the project as:

Tova Carlin will occupy 179 Canal by wallpapering sections of the space and inviting artists to perform against/with this backdrop. This wallpaper, an arena for consideration of the securities that delineate daily experience, is photocopied from patterns on the interior of bank envelopes.

Security envelopes are a great example of the weird power given over to printed matter (exactly what kind of security do they give us?) and I can only imagine what kind of responsive performances this environment will generate. You can download your own set here.

    Lately I saw some crafty arts made from security envelopes and they are just amazing. Totally agree with your comments about “security envelopes are a great example of the weird power given over to printed matter”.
