Remote Viewing is a performance and responsive installation presenting human and camera interactions as a site for contemplation. We live in an era of technological vision - and technological bodies. In contemporary forms of representation, what we "see" has often been subject to complex forms of mediation. Noxious Sector proposes a dislocation of bodies and of vision and an experiment in visual intervention. Focusing on the technology of drones as agents of remote vision and interaction, Remote Viewing is a meditation - part visual, part conceptual - on the status of vision, bodies, and technology in the 21st century. Drones are as much floating heads as they are predatory machines, and to emphasize this conflation is to begin to interrogate the logic of surveillance for its relationship to an embodied ethics of virtual behaviour.
