In film, sculpture, photography and installation, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle investigates technology, climate change, immigration and the global impact of social, political, environmental, and scientific systems. His work has involved him in washing and breaking the windows of Mies Van Der Rohe buildings, building radio-telescopes to search for extra terrestrials on the US/Mexican border, creating cryogenic sperm banks for archiving specimens from artists and curators, monitoring heroin poppies with military night vision, as well as capturing actual clouds and icebergs.
With support from UM Museum of Art (UMMA) and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD).
