Artist Talk: Remote Viewing: An Artist Talk – Collective, Obstructed, and Flatland. Carlos Rene Pacheco, Louisiana State University.

Carlos Rene Pacheco will give an Artist Talk concerning three bodies of work; Collective, Obstructed, and Flatland. These works explore the theme of new and evolving approaches to image-making such as webcams, camera phones, and drones. Collective is a series of books and videos made using live webcam images of recurring actions in culturally significant spaces. Obstructed pushes back against the voyeuristic nature of webcams and surveillance cameras. Obstructed is a series of abstractions recorded from livewebcamsin which various environmental factors and the camera's own mechanisms disrupt the camera's function as a tool that aids in global voyeurism. And Flatland is a series of photographs thatexploresthe textures and space of the Midwest, from above and below,alongthe vertical z-axis.
