Since graduating from the ECAL in 2007, Adrien Missika has been producing highly acclaimed pieces that combine photography, cinema, and installation. His work has earned him a place at numerous exhibitions, including the CPG group show Jeunevois in 2008. Nature and its forms figure regularly in his explorations, but certainly not to the exclusion of human structures, running the gamut from discreet traces to monumental architectural structures.
As the Coyote Flies comprises images recorded by a small drone from 11 different points along the U.S.-Mexico border, which is itself monitored by American Army drones. By turns sublime and dystopian, these dramatic images show the absurdity of this demarcation, which is so pathetic when seen from the sky and yet so terrible in human experience.
