Rory Macbeth X Passive Aggressive Collaborative Systems

02/03/2017 19:00 – 21:00

Please join us for our fourth event at Surtsey Projects.

Rory Macbeth has created a light and sound installation through the process of trying to force administrative IT systems to engage in a collaboration with him. These algorithms, such as automated phone lines and information sharing systems, often use the language of collaboration to disguise their hierarchical power structures. You are invited to join us for a disco at Surtsey Projects, which will undermine the power structures of these systems and question the nature of collaboration.

You can view a trailer for the event here.

Rory Macbeth is an Artists based in Liverpool. He is currently Head of Fine Art at Liverpool John Moores University and has previously exhibited at Tate Britain (London), Spike Island (Bristol) and Aarhus (Antwerp).

Passive Aggressive Collaborative Systems are administrative systems which are part of the infrastructure of business, government and education. They have been active since the early 1990s.
