In this session, we will take on the history of the discipline of remote sensing, its entanglement with state projects of surveillance, and the aesthetics of remoteness. What shapes the view from far away? How are senses and sciences changed by their extension into the aerial dimension?
We will embark on a joint discussion after brief presentations from our panellists.
