An unease accompanies the viewer's encounters with Darghouth's "vision machines". The large-scale paintings of surveillance cameras – fixed and borne aloft by drones, blimps, aircraft and satellites – which usually observe from a cautious distance, seem all too close. "Vision Machines" is comprised of acrylics depicting satellites, drones and blimps, all of them 120x120 cm, enforcing the notion that this breach of privacy comes in different forms.In one work the artist has apparently submerged a canvas in orange paint, which only proves to heighten the satellite's cold grey exterior. In some works these jarring figures are subdued by hues of pink and green.
