Noelle Mason is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work is about the subtle seductiveness of power facilitated by systems of visual and institutional control. X-Ray Vision vs. Invisibility is a body of work about the phenomenological effects of vision technologies on the perception of undocumented immigrants. The images used in this series were collected from the Border Patrol and border-watching vigilante websites. This project remediates images made by machine vision technologies that are used to patrol international borders into the 19th century processes of cyanotype and wet-plate collodion, as well as hand woven tapestries and embroideries.
