Description

Mass surveillance, data collection and A.I. are abstract but present in our lives. How do you make the unseen accountable? This film is a part human, part A.I. journey into the works and mind of Trevor Paglen, the world's leading contemporary artist revealing the unseen forces shaping our lives and futures. Here, he embarks on his most ambitious and thought-provoking work yet: the launch of a satellite into orbit purely for the sake of art. Unseen Skies explores the political, cultural, economic and philosophical implications of this ambitious project on how humans will continue to interface with art and technology into the future.

Tickets: $15 (Members from $10)
