Looking down from on high, this exhibition investigates how technology affords new perspectives on our planet, via work from stand-out artists.
From early aviation to modern drone surveillance, At Altitude investigates how developing technologies have changed our perspectives on landscape, time and space.
Where once aerial images were rare and inspiring, now we can view previously inaccessible parts of the globe through Google Earth, instantly accessing an exceptional – but strangely detached – vantage point above our planet.
Through historic and contemporary works by artists including Cornelia Parker, Wolfgang Tillmans and Tacita Dean, this exhibition traces the ways in which artists have responded to new methods of observing the world through painting, sculpture, photography and film.
