Technologies are bound to bound to fail. Screens crack, cables get shredded, old models are quickly replaced by newer ones, or things just don’t work as they should. A broad set of discourses and industries so optimistic in the claims they make—to make life better, easier, more efficient—and so embedded within capitalist logics of growth, innovation and progress cannot help but embarrass themselves when things go awry. For Louisa Beatty and David Ed Cooper, there’s potential in failure.

Join us at 5:30 pm on Wednesday 2 October for an open reading group with Sorawit Songsataya, held alongside our current exhibition Offspring of rain, an installation by Sorawit in collaboration with composer Antonia Barnett-McIntosh.

Sorawit and Hōhua Thompson will lead a collaborative discussion of Ursula Le Guin’s text “The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction,” which reflects upon language, storytelling and technology; arguing for a narrative mode which redefines science and technology as a “cultural carrier bag rather than weapon of domination.”
