    Bird Watching

Entry Number: 08


Description:


    Bird Watching is an interactive audio and video installation created specifically to comment on the invisible presence of space satellites. I focus on satellites to highlight the politics of remote sensing, amateurism, and identity. Bird Watching asks in a personal and intimate way if satellites, as tools of globalization, are transforming our conceptions of identity.

    My playful cardboard birds challenge the perception of satellites as remote objective “eyes” and my distinctive low-tech approach makes remote sensing satellites accessible and their surveillance palpable. The “DIY” creativity of amateur inventors inspired the unusual combination of cardboard and sensors.
