Anything But Square: Under Surveillance
This winter at Fed Square, enter a hair-raising, spine-tingling world – where we are watched, everywhere, all the time.  Our phones, our homes are listening. Our streets, our devices are watching. The Eyes are following you. Creepy, huh? In our winter Anything But Square: Under Surveillance program, we playfully explore these murky feelings of awkwardness and intrigue – the push and pull of the desire to know and the desire to be deceived. Enter: The Eyes. A colossal, sprawling sculptural dystopia of creepy-creepy eyes by artist studio Cool Shit, taking over the Square this winter. Discover your own discomfort – as The Eyes watch you, watching them, watching you. Check out the full program of activity below!

Free popcorn will be available from the Woofy’s Eye Spy Cart on Saturday 2 and 9 July, and Sunday 3 and 10 July at the start of each film and will be available until stocks run out.
