Join artist Noelle Mason for her talk on her series X-Ray Vision vs Invisibility, Mason remediated appropriated images and collected from border patrol, vigilantes, commercial security websites, and satellite images into hand-made objects to expose how new vision technologies including backscatter x-ray, thermal emission radiometer, and infrared imaging to alienate and separate the image from the human being.

Noelle Mason, MFA, is an Associate Professor of Art at the University of South Florida and a multimedia artist whose politically engaged work consists of appropriated images and films that are transformed into unique objects through 19th century photographic processes, as well as laborious hand crafts like tapestry and embroidery. Her work has been exhibited throughout Florida and the United States, and she is the founder and curator of Parallelogram Gallery and Cunsthaus in Tampa.

Noelle will be joined in conversation by SK West a writer based in Tampa, Florida. She earned her M.A. in Art History from the University of South Florida, and has published works of art criticism, journalism, and poetry. Her academic research interests centered on contemporary art and criticism, and its intersections with philosophy. SK swoons over eloquent sentences, talks to her houseplants, and loves her beagle, Pinto Bean, very much.
