From January 11 – February 17, 2018, Gallery 1C03 will present What Flies Above, a two-person exhibition of new digital and sculptural installations by Winnipeg artists Reva Stone and Erika Lincoln that explores socio-political implications of our interactions with unmanned aerial vehicles (often referred to as UAVs or drones).

For two years and independently of one another, Lincoln and Stone have researched UAVs in their artistic practices. Stone’s digital works investigate how UAVs are represented in popular culture and reflect the often-unconscious stories we tell ourselves about them, including our social and cultural hopes and fears. What Flies Above will include her text-based animated projection Alphabet and an interactive computer-programmed installation titled Console. Lincoln’s interests include the trickle-down effect of mass surveillance and cybernetic technologies into consumer goods. She incorporates 3D printing to make real and imagined connections between military and recreational applications of UAVs through works such as LookingIN and LookingOUT and NGGHBelugaDrone.

Exhibit is open weekdays 12-4 pm and Saturdays 1-4 pm.

Artist talks on January 18 at 6 pm.
