Exhibit Opening - Rick Silvia Western Fronts
Western Fronts: Cascade Siskiyou, Gold Butte, Grand Staircase-Escalante, and Bears Ears is an experimental video installation that reflects the political and ecological threats that face four U.S. National Monuments.
This 18 minute video video work combines aerial drone footage and photogrammetry with 3D animation to create a nature documentary that collapses into itself. The wilderness is scanned by large shapes that momentarily reduce the landscape into grayscale polygons —in these redactions we glimpse a near-future dystopia of computer-vision aided resource extraction.
This exhibition will be on view until February 29th.
