Gabriel Shannon

Gabriel Thomas is an artist living in South East London. Broadcast is a piece about biometric data collection, and the harvesting of DNA in Afghanistan. Put your finger on a sensor and a profile of who you are and what you represent comes up fast as a QR scan. It’s about the promise of jobs and aid on one side for the price of an iris pattern on another. It’s about exchange.
