The artist uses publicly accessible resources to investigate, visualize and call attention to otherwise unseen information about the worldwide military application of unmanned aerial vehicles. The exhibit features prints, computer installations, a model of a “drone identification kit”, and a “drone shadow” painted on an outdoor sculpture pad in front of the museum. The exhibit runs through July 7.
