Juxtaposing overhead scenes of contemporary human culture with scenes reminiscent of microscopic life, Populations (ODC Theater, San Francisco, 2015) suggests that human crowds and protozoic masses may be viewed in the same way, that it’s just a matter of scale. In an era of aerial drones and widespread video surveillance, certain members of our society are in fact viewing human populations in much the same way that microbiologists study single-celled beings. Whether this is a positive or negative development is a matter of opinion. But regardless of your point of view, perhaps we all should take time to look up and consider whether or not we are being watched.
