Unmanned Landscapes

Justin Ward

Saturday, March 14 - 10:00AM to 10:20AM
Celestin A

Unmanned Landscapes explores the ways in which satellite and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), or drone, technology can be utilized to experience the land in new ways. My artwork explores how the abstraction of aerial imagery can alter a viewer's expectations and perception of a landscape. I collect images using a small, commercially-available UAV and by appropriating satellite views. Numerous images are collected and composited together to create large-scale pieces. This project blends realism with abstraction, fantasy with reality, and nature with technology. I play in the space between what a place is and what it can become.
