bilingual edition (English / French)

Une généalogie des grandes oreilles is the result of an iconographic research conducted by artist Lauren Tortil over the past three years on what she calls “Big Ears”: these military surveillance devices that call upon mediated listening – an increased listening through a mediator, such as a tool, an instrument, an architecture, a system, etc.—and that the modern man has relentlessly improved with the purpose of anticipating potential dangers.
