Drones are in the news.

Appropriating visual juxtapositions from the surrealists and kitsch sic-fi invasion films, Karina Aguilera Skvirsky's Drones, is a series of photo-collages that put flying objects into our aerial landscapes. This series includes landscapes from US, Ecuador and other unidentifiable locations. Skvirsky is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in photography, video and performance. Her work has been exhibited internationally in group and solo exhibitions. She teaches at Lafayette College and The New School, Parsons School of Design.
