 Arts + Design

The recent surge of aerial imaging technologies such as satellites and drones has prompted scholarly discussions on what has come to emerge as a new visual paradigm. Approaching this subject from the perspective of contemporary art, this project brings into question the entangled histories of the moving image and spatial expression, while addressing the imaginative and emotional capacities increasingly colonized by remote sensing aerial imaging technologies.
