Technology Autonomous

Jenny Brady

Description

‘Shot in the Dublin Institute of Technology’s optics research laboratory, the video work Technology Autonomous documents the construction of a holographic image, while a voice off screen recites extracts from Dennis Gabor’s 1972 book “The Mature Society: a Vision of the Future”. In the text, Gabor, the inventor of holography, describes his vision of future technology from a societal perspective. The work considers notions of illusion in relation to filmic construction, financial speculation and sustainability. The electronic score by Andrew Fogarty, was produced from a collection of sound recordings of various machines and synthesizers.’ (Sourced from http://jennifer-brady.com/2011/technology-autonomous-2/ on May 6th 2016)
