In his installation, Private Future, Ziga Kariz investigates the idea of permeation as it stands for the idea of insidious images that invade, subsume, and disallow distinct space for the self. Starting from Mondrian’s philosophical, visual grid and linking it to populist designs by elite thinkers in fashion, film, and architecture, Kariz questions the availability of privacy and genuine autonomy for the individual.
