Up above, aliens hover, making home movies for their folks back home (UAAHMHMFTFBH)


2018



Utilizing images and video stills of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) found on the internet, Up above, aliens hover, making home movies for the folks back home is an ongoing visual study of these phenomena using the web page as a platform of interaction with the work. Each image is digitally stripped of any visual context, leaving only the alleged object for scrutiny. Curious viewers can "catch" the UFOs as well, leading them to the source of the found image.

Up above, aliens hover, making home movies for the folks back home is also a curious attempt to ask the following: Are these alleged documentations just misidentifications, hoaxes, or something more? Can we examine these images from an aesthetic standpoint? As beautiful manifestations of our collective fascination towards the unknown, existing ephemerally in the sea of consciousness that is the World Wide Web?
