CONTROL/AUTOMATION

Control/Automation is a brief investigation into everyday technologies—parking meters, electronic barriers, microprocessors, autopilot systems—which regulate our behavior for greater safety and order. What drives our desire to encapsulate human knowledge into—and even give away decision-making capabilities to—hardware and software? Control/Automation reveals the imperceptible traces of Deleuze’s Control Society, asking whether political agency has diminished with our newfound dependence on automated systems.
