World Premiere

A vintage saucer becomes the lens through which we observe projected footage of natural disasters, world events and a drone’s-eye view of one individual’s daily activities. Public and private worlds collide as the omniscient gaze cast by the aerial perspective parallels the wide net of electronic surveillance and data collection that monitors and captures our everyday communications, transactions, and locations.
