Join artist Maria Antelman for a walkthrough of her exhibition Disassembler, which includes a selection of works by the former Pioneer Works resident. Antelman creates collage-like videos that pull from a well of sources, including scenarios about rewilding the American West, ideas of techno-animism, and early reconnaissance images from outer space. Disassembler and its namesake video installation raise questions about the physical and psychological impact of automation processes on the individual and society.
