Etienne Robertson, La Minerve, 1803

Etienne Robertson, La Minerve, 1803

Isabella Streffen works in photography, film & video, writing and interstitial media to interrogate questions of perception, looking and desiring, often using low-tech instruments to challenge orthodox wisdom and explore the fundamental problems of vision.

Isabella’s current research examines the use of technologies developed for military vision, their use in art practice, and the impact on questions of subjectivity. She has a particular interest in the Space Race and the forgotten narratives of the Cold War.
