Presenter: John Vigg
About The Presentation:
Emerging technologies including the ability to have an untethered eye have allowed us access to imagery we are not used to.
We live in an always on, data driven society where new devices like the personal drone have given artists the ability to make images once only accessible to large contractors and government agencies.
Current images are only so current, and our desire for truthful up to the minute pictures are shaping the way in which we read and absorb information.
About The Presenter:
John's work mixes new technologies to further describe contemporary landscape and the changes in current aesthetics while investigating the production of space.
Heavily influenced by geography and the sense of place, his projects are often categorized by an in-depth analysis of specific subjects such as land use, theories on landscape and exploration.
By combining photography with mapping and surveillance technologies, his projects reveal sites that are normally unseen, expose areas of contradiction, and challenge the traditional use of photography to record what we understand as “place”.
