BIO
Caspar Below is an artist experimenting with our relationships to communities, technology and power.

Previous projects have involved audiences in re-enacting crowd control, finding new parent memories for orphaned family photos and answering a multitude of inquiries via text message as the SMS Oracle.

He set up pirate radio broadcasts in a Northern Irish village and used secret filming to map the no-go aura of governmental buildings by stepping into its sensitive zones. More recently he collected bad advice and disposed of it in a series of cleansing rituals as well as running workshops training South Londoners in DIY techniques of urban mass evacuation.

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
