Surveillance is fraught with sinister meaning when coupled with the association of aerial scanning of what appears to be a cityscape looming out of the darkness: red for infrared? Yellow for contagion? Shapes that look like radioactive warning symbols. Shapes that suggest audiotape reels. Shapes that appear, suddenly, to be targets - largely because of a title. One looks again, and the night "City" is really pegboard configurations, random stencil shapes and unintelligible, frenetic circuitry. Our ability to "read in" to abstraction is much greater and more developed than we think.
