Draw a Line and Follow it: Videos by William Lamson

14 September to 28 October 2012

Brooklyn-based artist Will Lamson often uses his knowledge of technology to interact with and change perceptions of everyday objects, and this display of some of his recent video work highlighted his unrelenting and often surprising exploration of the interface between man, nature and machine.  This was the first complete exhibition of video-based work to be featured in the UAG.

This exhibition was presented in partnership with ISEA2012 "Albuquerque: Machine Wilderness," the 18th Annual Symposium on Electronic Art.
