BIO
Caspar Below is an award-winning artist who explores the relationship between history, technology and social responsibility.

His projects include the collection and ritual disposal of bad advice about life, the creation of local historical memorials in liquid form available in pubs and cafes, training Londoners in techniques of urban mass evacuation and mapping the sensitivity of buildings to unauthorised persons. It also includes a range of participatory community outreach activities from the use of cutting edge digital tools with prisoners and ex-offenders, to the temporary creation of ultra-local radio broadcasts in Northern Ireland.

In 2013 he won the Camberwell Open with his Payday Loan Cenotaph installation and was specially commended by the London Sinfonietta for his piece ‘Commuter Audio Algorithm’.

In 2014, he was commissioned to found the Camberwell Arts archive to document the history of the grassroots arts organisation through artefacts, photos, documents and oral history recordings. The archive is being set up at Lambeth and Southwark Archives.

DISCUSSION

Drone's Eye View: A Look at How Artists are Revealing the Killing Fields


In 2010 I made a fictional film about drones being used to control western urban centres. At the time I was very interested in the ambitions of removing decision making (and ultimately responsibility)from human beings
