DRONE life 1.0Alley behind Congress Beer House Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
Visual Arts, Theatre — Virtual Activity
DRONE life 1.0 is a collaborative art installation between Vancouver artists Monique Motut-Firth and Jayson Woolvett. It involves a one-minute digital loop projection that experiments with animating a machine-like paper collage and wheat pasting images of other drone-like collages around the city centre. Inspired by the current Cold War political environment and the ongoing threat of nuclear war; these mechanical structures return the gaze of capitalist image consumption towards the audience and survey the social space; the viewer is now the one being observed.
