"Blind House: Utopia and Dystopia in the Age of Radical Transparency," by collaborative artists Paloma Munoz and Walter Martin, is a razor-sharp work that brings into question our ideals of house and home, privacy, and safety. The exhibition combines photographs the artists have envisioned of houses without windows as well an actual glass house planned for the center of the gallery, revisiting the whole notion of a glass house as an example of sophistication, luxury, and modernism. In a darkening an era of surveillance and the internet, for Martin and Munoz, "Blind House" serves as "a metaphorical solution to the full on campaign against personal privacy."
