Balloon Infrastructures
June 10 - 12 2013

The history of balloon flight goes back almost 2000 years, manned flight over 200 - and as a weapon, to 1849: from Treviso. In this workshop, James Bridle explains the principles of grassroots mapping and balloon photography, and with the Fabrica residents exploring the possibilities of balloons as playful and political platforms for cartography, aerial photography, surveillance and infrastructure; their relationship to drones and satellites; and their potential as architecture.
