Exhibition Label
Trevor Paglen’s work presents ideas that deal with secrecy and the workings of the military and intelligence world. Though the work is officially untitled, Paglen’s descriptive phase, Predators; Indian Springs, NV, refers to the presence of distant Predator drones in the sky above Nevada, in effect asking the viewer to perceive intellectually what is easily visible from the ground.
