Artist Emily Jacir was born in 1970, raised in Saudi Arabia and attended High School in Rome, Italy. In linz diary (2003), Jacir explores the complexities of surveillance by inserting herself into the frame of one of the Austrian city's multiple webcams. Thus, she asserts herself as a resident of both this space and the global network of images residing in unknown locations.
From the current exhibition Generation 1.5 at the Queens Museum of Art.
