Fully Automated Aquarium, 2017
Multimedia installation with CRT television, DVD player, DVD-R, flatbed shopping cart, tie-down strap
Is emancipatory full automation more than an accelerationist pipe dream? The Fully Automated Aquarium, assembled from found materials, caricatures automation by exploiting an emergent glitch arising from platform incompatibility. It responds to calls for full automation that arose around Nick Srnicek and Alex Williams’s 2013 Manifesto for an Accelerationist Politics.
