MFA Art '24 candidate Devin Wilson presents "The Pigeon Has Landed," this exhibition explores the pigeon as the symbolic nexus of capitalism. Serving as both a reflection on obsolete technology in delivery services and an exploration of pigeons as agents of militarized spying, the project confronts the whimsical yet unsettling conspiracy theory that posits "Birds Aren't Real." Through the use of digital fabrication and advanced engineering processes, the work in the exhibition explores the satirical nature of internet meme culture, which produces, replicates, and disseminates fictional narratives and conspiracy theories.
