Now on view at NOME, Reconnaissance is a debut solo exhibition for artist and writer Ingrid Burrington. Burrington presents a series of large-scale lenticular prints of data centers, military sites, and downlinks. Each print combines two separate aerial photographs of a particular site, so that as a viewer shifts position in front of the work, the print reveals the alternate capture, which is often quite different from the other. In her research notes Burrington writes, “The view from nowhere doesn’t emerge from nowhere . . . it’s the result of decades of aerospace and electrical engineering research and development.” Reconnaissance is an examination of the particular aesthetics of aerial imagery, suggesting a connection between the variability of aerial photography and the political potential of the information that these images contain and obscure.
