“Rest Assured You Are Under Video Surveillance” Comes to Lawrence Public Library

On Sunday, 3 January 2016, “Rest Assured You Are Under Video Surveillance” will meet the public at the Lawrence Public Library at 707 Vermont St. in Lawrence, Kansas.  Following the installation’s appearance at the Cider Gallery and the LawFree state fest 1rence Free State Festival last summer, viewers referred to seeing themselves and others on camera in the otherwise zen environment of the rock garden as “eerie”, “jarring”, and “creepy”.  Artists Bryon Darby, Cotter Mitchell, Aaron Paden, and Aaron Long are hoping for more strong reactions with this latest installation.
