The Androne: or Semi-Autonomous Flying Hurdy-Gurdy (After Tatlin) by Andrew Barco, 2015, wood and musical instrument parts, 14” x 13’ x 6’

The exhibition Remote Connection asks us consider our mediated relationship with war and reality. We are inundated with media covering drone strikes, zones of conflict, and suicide bombers – yet we are typically very distanced from these everyday occurrences. The media’s messages are controlled, edited, and biased. How much fiction are we consuming? Our mediated relationship to war has been further elevated by the on screen relationship of the drone pilot to the characters they are aiming to strike with the push of a button from a comfortable distance.
