Steve Rowell, DVPLA, "Uncanny Sensing, Remote Valleys"

Artist and Spring 2021 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Liberal Arts for Steve Rowell investigates ecology and post-natural landscapes in his multicomponent exhibition Uncanny Sensing, Remote Valleys (2021). The project’s title combines “remote sensing” (a method of data collection from the physical world via sensors and other remote technology) and “uncanny valley” (the cognitive dissonance caused by lifelike replicas of living things). Through the use of autonomous aerial cameras, air-monitoring sensors, and sound detectors, Rowell gathers and contextualizes media and data from the field. His talk will include examples of how his creative vision re-interprets documentation of animal behavior, toxic waste, erosion, and other elements of the human-altered landscape.
