We are happy and proud to be an active part of “Normal is boring”, a table consisting of five objects. Four of them are the result of the investigations by Tactical Technology Collective and their visualisation by La Loma.
- The Zuckerberg House (model house / 3D print)
- The Shire (model of a office room of the Palantir)
- The Fertility Chip (simulation / laser cut and engraving)
- The Google Empire (information graphic / wood and acrylic)
The table forms part of ”The White Room“, a live installation shown in the exhibition ”Nervous Systems. Quantified Life and the Social Question” at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin / 11.03 – 09.05 2016), curated by Stephanie Hankey, Marek Tuszynski and Anselm Franke.
The objects, books, artifacts, gadgets and artworks gathered here offer a contemplation on autonomy as a disappearing modus operandi of political action, while eye-opening, hands-on workshops, discussions and demos focus on the devices we use every day: How do they work? What individual data traces do they capture? Where do these go, and what kind of control can one regain?
