Print More

Blazo Kovacevic, Assistant Professor of Art and Design at Binghamton University, has a new exhibit of his work called 'Incited' at the Dowd Gallery on the SUNY Cortland campus.

"Incited is a large-scale, multimedia installation featuring digitally modified security X-rays taken by European border patrol forces of vehicles carrying hidden illegal immigrants in their cargo. This exhibition focuses on the acute problems of human trafficking, smuggling and terrorism currently dominating the socio-political sphere. The unobstructed views of trucks, vans and cars harboring stowaways also offer insight into privacy issues and the fragility of the human body."

A virtual reality 360 video will allow the viewer to experience being one of the 54 illegal immigrants transported under inhumane conditions in the cargo van that crashed in Serbia two years ago. That experience will premiere on December 5 from 4 to 6 pm in the same gallery.

The exhibit runs through December 8.
