SWITCH CIRCUIT

About

The cell is becoming stronger, more powerful, more useful, and more detrimental. It is with you at all times. It is in your pocket, it is in your very make up and it surrounds you. For 12 hours at BLANKSPACE you can begin to understand the cell. Learn more about it and you can learn how to control it, but you must also be prepared to discover how it controls you. Switch Circuit, part of FutureEverything Festival 2011 will explore the possibilities of participation and interaction over a 12-hour period. Switch Circuit is an unpredictable experiment involving each participant's mobile-technological capabilities and looking at how intrusions and interruptions can take advantage of the trust we place in their potentially dangerous functionalities.
