A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce National Artist Kathy Marmor's solo exhibition, Bird Watching. The exhibition will be on view from April 29 to May 24 2008, with an opening reception on May 1 from 6pm to 8pm.

In Bird Watching the artist makes the science of remote sensing tangible through her ingenious DIY approach to sophisticated technology. Kathy Marmor's homebrewed remote sensing satellites challenge us to rethink the meaning of surveillance, by turning each viewer/participant into a human antenna.

Marmor received her MFA in Imaging and Digital Arts from University of Maryland Baltimore County. She is currently an associate professor at the University of Vermont. Marmor's work has been widely exhibited in the United States and abroad including at Ciber@rts-Bilbao, Spain and New Forms festival in Vancouver, Canada as well as most recently at the Black and White Gallery in Williamsburg, New York. Her essay Bird Watching, an Introduction to Amateur Satellite Spotting, will be published in Summer 2008 in Leonardo, The Journal for the International Society for the Arts Sciences and Technology.
