Who is Trevor Paglen?
Trevor Paglen is a conceptual artist with activist intentions. His work blurs the lines between art, science, and investigative journalism to construct unfamiliar and at times unsettling ways to see and interpret the world around us. Paglen’s photographs and installations expose things we are not meant to see, whose concealment he regards as symptomatic of the historical moment we inhabit and invite us to envision alternative futures. Check out more of his work here.
