Video by Hiba Ali

June 6 - 27, 2017
Programmed by SAVAC, exhibited at Whippersnapper Gallery

Through a series of digital assemblages, the multimedia installation Satellites maps out systems of vision by investigating landscapes known as frontiers, both “outerspace” and “Western”, digital and physical, metaphoric and literal. Through, gifs, archival video documents and warped imagery, the newhive webpages probes embedded Western ideology in digital media by analyzing technologies' role in place-making and imaging the world around us. This video discerns the subliminal codes that have historically guided our perception of imagining the world.
