Spy-Revealing Sculptures
The 'I Can Burn Your Face' Installation Hints at Spy Identitites

Exposing spies through art, artist Jill Magid created the ‘I Can Burn Your Face’ installation. The sculpture consists of a series of neon lights that reveal secret data from the Dutch secret service AIVD. Since the organization uses the phrase “to burn a face” to indicate when a source has been compromised, Magid decided that playing on the phrase would make a good title.

The secrets divulged in the installation were found by interviewing members of AIVD. After AIVD confiscated parts of the installation, Magid decided to release the rest.

I Can Burn Your Face is composed of 19 different pieces including the title piece. Each one reflects an interview with a different AIVD agent that Magid interviewed.
