Please Stare is a unique public art project presented by Neutral Ground and Soil Digital Media Suite.

Throughout Regina and Saskatoon silent video art has been surreptitiously planted amongst digital billboards. Following the same format asand placed amongstother advertisements, these videos comment on the nature of advertisement and public visual space. The Artists in Please Stare draw parallels between adculture and artistic production by playfully adopting and critiquing the psychosocial aesthetics of the ad.

Featuring seven of Canada’s most engaging video artists:

Dana Claxton 

Dominique Rey


Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins

Jon Sasaki 

Kelly Mark

Lee Henderson

Curated by John G. Hampton

Additional technical assistance provided to the artists by Western Front, Trinity Square Video and Video Pool.

Funded by the Canada Council for the Arts with the Saskatchewan Arts Board, Sask Culture, City of Regina, Sask Lotteries.
