MOVABLE BORDERS: THE REPOSITION MATRIX with David Young
Free Workshop: Saturday 18 May 2013, 1-5pm

ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION

Featuring artworks and projects by Bureau of Inverse Technology (US & AU), Lawrence Byrd (US), Patrick Lichty (US), Dave Miller & Gavin Stewart (UK), The Force of Freedom (DE) and Dave Young (NL).

The devices that once populated the creepy dystopian futures of science fiction have broken through into our daily reality.

Drones of dozens of different types are becoming a part of everyday life. They scout our public (and private) spaces, carrying out surveillance or reconnaissance in the service of nation states and as unmanned robotic tools, armed with missiles and bombs, acting in defence of "national security".
During the three weeks of Movable Borders: Here Come the Drones! people are invited to visit the gallery, view artworks and join a workshop by artists who are contemplating how drones are changing the way we see and relate to each other and the world around us.


EVENTS

MOVABLE BORDERS: THE REPOSITION MATRIX with David Young
Free Workshop: Saturday 18 May 2013, 1-5pm
Please book your place with Alessandra ale@furtherfield.org

David Young will be holding a workshop on the subject of drones on Saturday 18 May, 1-5 pm. In a post-national age, where "territorial and political boundaries are increasingly permeable"[2], what has become of the borderline? How is it defined, and what technologies are used to control it?

Movable Borders is an ongoing research project that begins to explore possible answers to these questions through facilitating discussions around the 'reterritorialisation' of the borderline in the information age. The first series of Movable Borders events is a workshop series titled The Reposition Matrix. Participants are invited to investigate the use of cybernetic military systems such as remotely piloted aircraft (drones) and the Disposition Matrix, a dynamic database of intelligence that produces protocological kill-lists for the US Department of Defense.

His research deals with the Cold War history of networked culture, exploring the emergence of cybernetic theory as an ideology of the information age and the influence of military technologies on popular culture.
