Golden Solution: Michael Candy, Andrew McLellan, Kiah Reading Golden Solution does: Ariel ReCreationOpening: 6 & 8 May 2014, 6-8pm Dates: 6-8 May 2014
2013 was the pivot-point year drones escaped from the clandestine nightmare of foreign warzones to the daily contemplation of civic life. Accelerating past the usual embargo placed by law enforcement and corporate application, the hobbyists have begun droning themselves, venturing with the new extension into the physical laboratory of the public. As part of the weeklong Altertruism series, Aerial ReCreation proposes new prototypes and invented encounters with a technology obfuscated by standard images and news reports.
Altertruism is a series developed by Brisbane-based philanthropists Golden Solution (Michael Candy, Andrew McLellan, Kiah Reading). Part of the 2014 Next Wave Festival, the three-part series proposes situations and environments that network human action with technological apparatus and systematize activity.
Altertruism has been commissioned and developed through Next Wave’s Kickstart program for Next Wave Festival 2014.This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
