In an era increasingly defined by the ubiquity of visual information—from the billions of photos posted each day on social media to ever more omniscient techniques for surveilling bodies and crowds—vision is no longer merely a human ability, but a set of practices employed by diverse networked and computational actors. As researchers and practitioners, visual artists are trained to see physical worlds and envision social relationships from unique perspectives, often inventing, modifying, and repurposing various techniques and technologies of vision. This panel brings together artists working in new media and established traditions to explore the limits of and possibilities of observation, circulation, representation, and identification in a digital age.
