19 in 2021: A Drone’s-Eye View is a website adaption of artist Nat Pyper’s sci-fi serial of the same name and an online exhibition featuring new works by Bárbara Baron, Julio Córdova, and Marissa Macias.
Virtual Exhibition and Program Dates: October 2, 2020 – November 20, 2020.
Explore the world of four queer Latinx 19-year-olds as they navigate teenage angst, family ties, and surveillance capitalism through assembled media content such as soundscapes, moving images, and wearable fashion looks inspired by the narrative and characters in the 19 in 2021 series. Programming for this project included a weekly SF+ reading group entitled I Dreamed I Was A We. The SF+ reading group discussed speculative fiction (SF) and essays (+) that address contemporary crises and liberation struggles by writers including Octavia Butler, Lou Cornum, Angela Davis, W. E. B. Du Bois, Saidiya Hartman, Ursula K. Le Guin, José Esteban Muñoz, and others.
This project was a selected project proposal submitted by Nat Pyper, Bárbara Baron, Julio Córdova, and Marissa Macias for the SCP+C 2020 open call program with the jury help of Santiago X and funded by the 2019 Propeller Fund Grant.
