MAY 2015 - Wilderness: Scenes from the Passenger Screen

Shade Projects is proud to present Wilderness: Scenes from the Passenger Screen, the solo exhibition of Nic Wiesinger in Bokeh Gallery at the Monorchid. This exhibition showcases the artist’s latest series of photography examining ideas about the Wilderness, while utilizing current technology to obtain imagery of these designated wilderness areas. Wiesinger poses important questions through his artwork such as “How do we define Wilderness, and what is truly wild in this country of Wifi and Google?”  Wiesinger presents photography taken of maps showing areas with wilderness designations paired with pictures of those same areas seen from Google Maps Street Views.
