Surveillance 2008-9

Karapetian's work frequently concerns moments of crisis as they register in both photographic and architectural space, from the marks of unrest transcribed on the Western panels of the Berlin Wall to the charged space of shadows burnt into the walls at Hiroshima. Here, she looked at images of surveillance specific to California and spent time with their forms. Soon after, working with the Wende Museum & Archive of the Cold War, she examined fragments of the Wall.
