Materialities of the Robotic: Jordan Crandall in performance and in conversation with Ryan Bishop
with: Ryan Bishop, Jordan Crandall
In this late night conversation, Crandall will perform a series of excerpts from Unmanned, followed by an exchange with Ryan Bishop.
In Unmanned, Crandall conducts a series of monologues in the guise of seven different characters, each an archetype of masculine identity struggling with its own agency and role in a militarised environment where the status of the human is called into question. The drone becomes a figure for a reorganisation of agency and skill, within a data-intensive environment of distributed and embedded intelligence. In this late night conversation, Crandall will perform a series of excerpts from Unmanned, followed by an exchange with Ryan Bishop. The conversation will consider autonomous systems, sensing-at-distance, teletechnologies, and the constructions of subjectivity within large-scale integrated weapons systems.
Presented in cooperation with Winchester School of Art.
