Control Room Systems is an site specific installation made for Johannson Projects in Oakland CA. Joshua built a "Safe room" in the gallery which contained several surveillance units, sleeping quarters and a month supply of provisions. Within the control room the viewer could surveil the mock gallery space, make coffee, or whip up some canned foods if they got hungry. They could even crawl under the control console and take a nap.
Surveillance cameras were "Hidden" with all of the artwork on view.
