USF Associate Professor of Art Noelle Mason is the winner of the Critical Mass 2019 Blue Sky Solo Show award for her series X-Ray Vision vs. Invisibility.

The series will exhibit at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, OR in April 2020.

From the artist: X-Ray Vision vs. Invisibility is a body of work about the phenomenological effects of vision technologies on the perception of undocumented immigrants. This project remediates images of the border into handmade objects to expose how new vision technologies (backscatter, x-ray, sonic, thermal and digital imaging) recycle Cartesian modes of viewing both land and body in so doing reinforce a neocolonial social and political relationship with Mexico.
