Event description

Description

Sydney is in the midst of unprecedented change. Surrounding it is a competing sense of opportunity and a loss of control. A city unsettled.

Infrastructure distributes and encodes the flows of urban life through a series of predetermined choices. These flows are maintained or restricted through the careful deployment of passivity and control. In doing so infrastructure reduces the complexity of the city to manageable urban forms. Knowledge, people, land, resources, emissions and products are extracted from their particular existence and reconstituted as parts.

What are these infrastructural systems, codes, standard and programs? What interests do they prioritise? Can they be co-opted, or should they be radically redesigned?

Join us at Unsettled 2: Choose Sydney to investigate the place of ‘choice’, ‘discretion’ and ‘compromise’ in the city’s infrastructure space.
