Smithsonian American Art Museum
Artist Lecture with Trevor Paglen: The Planet is a Sensor
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20, 2018, 6:30 – 7:30PM
Celebrating the opening of the new exhibition, Trevor Paglen: Sites Unseen, artist Trevor Paglen presents a series of projects exploring planet-scale sensing systems. From fiber optic cables under the earth’s oceans and reconnaissance satellites in earth’s orbit, to the autonomous vision systems and artificial intelligence networks that have come to inhabit the most intimate parts of our lives, Paglen’s projects offer a glimpse into some of the unseen landscapes that characterize our historical moment.
The exhibition opens at 3 p.m. for you to enjoy prior to the talk. Door for the talk open at 6 p.m.
This is an event brought to you by our friends at The Smithsonian American Art Museum.
