A Performative Response to Sites of Surveillance: The Gorilla Park Project

Shauna Janssen, Katrina Jurjans, Eduardo Perez, christian scott

The key interlocutor for this project is Gorilla Park, an irregular shaped parcel of land located on a disused railway track, in a Montreal neighbourhood called Marconi-Alexandria, currently a rapidly gentrifying quarter of the city. The uneven development in this part of the city is, in part, due to the increasing presence of Big Data and Smart City start-up companies.
