Discomfited and fascinated by the way technology has increasingly shaped our existence, Maria Antelman produces coolly elegant videos, photographs, sound pieces, and installations that question the effect of technological advancement on our understanding of the human condition. In her words, “I like science and technology in a humanistic way.

This becomes eerily apparent in her series of stark photographs of the massive buildings and machines comprising NASA space centers, which she sees as perpetuating the information-overloaded loop in which we are trapped, with satellites bringing us views of ourselves instead of the vast frontiers beyond.
