EXPOSURE is a projection-based multi-channel HD video installation, conceived and directed by media artist Marie Sester. A restless slow motion picture transformation, EXPOSURE questions the shift in the ideology that lead the western world enterprise to develop its range of representation. The installation was developed in 2001 as the fifth and last installment in a series of video-based work that explores how X-ray imagery was used for surveillance, pre-9/11.

EXPOSURE was initially produced as a 6-channel synchronized SD video installation. In subsequent years, it has been re-rendered and exhibited as a 3-channel HD synchronized installation, single-channel HD installation, and single-channel 4K installation.

Still frame photo compositions from EXPOSURE have been exhibited in galleries in New York and Stockholm and are available to collectors as a print edition. In 2008, large prints from this edition were exhibited in the Seoul International Media Art Biennale.
