Hunting the Machine Ghosts of Brighton |

Review By Kat Braybrooke -

What is a city that dreams of itself? In Brighton, a recent psychoegeography tour unveiled hidden machine entities, the radical wisdoms of forgotten structures, and the subversive act of walking alongside algorithms while listening for their histories.

In our own interpretation of the psychogeography "play box", people from across the UK came together from local community discussion lists, universities and creative networks to join the group. We called them ‘node guardians’ to connote a shared sense of ownership regarding both the tour nodes (which were lead not only by ourselves but also by several other brave participants, who also facilitated hands-on activities to engage listeners more deeply in the lived experiences of each machine node).

Wishing you well.
