More amazing news: Perpetual Nomads has been accepted into the Networked Disruptions Exhibition at FLEFF 2019. The exhibition runs from the 1st to the 7th of April. Here’s a description of the themes and concepts underpinning the Exhibition:
“Disruptions stop the flow of events, ideas, processes, and structures. They produce stoppages, breaks, and fissures where old flows are halted and new ones can emerge. In some cases, disruptions are productive, as in technological and political revolutions. In other cases, disruptions are destabilizing and counterproductive, as in severe weather patterns and market volatilities.
Global climate disruptions consist in unwanted and unnatural environmental changes. They give rise to rising air and water temperatures, to rising water and toxicity levels, to rising fears and anxieties. Disrupting consumerist habits, such as use of cheap fossil fuels to power single-person or single-family (“private”) automobiles and produce single-use (“disposable”) plastics, is an urgent response that can be distributed across the world.
Networked disruptions consist in outages, censorship, violations of privacy, and thefts of identities. Hackers have often worked to unlock content and interrupt the algorithms that narrow the aggregated information in our search engine results or our social media feeds.
This exhibition [shows] projects that explore disruptions in relation to our natural and virtual environments. Ones that contribute to broadening dialogues and debates.”
