Piratbyrån (The Bureau for Piracy) was started by a bunch of hacking, coding, reading, listening, philosophising, clubbing, rioting, carding, chatting, loving, slacking people in 2003 as an antidote to Hollywood’s representatives in Sweden - Antipiratbyrån.
In 2008 Pratbyrån had grown tired of the file-sharing debate and its endless repetitions of for-or-against, legal-or-illegal, payment-or-gratis, so they loaded a bus with 23 people and head over south in Sweden in a bus: S23M (System 23 Modified), The bus became one of the most significant undertakings of Piratbyrån and shaped their thoughts on the tensions between digital abundance and crowded space, collective decisions and freedom of choice, and that which can be copied and that which can’t.
This film is a collaboration between Geraldine Juárez, Simon Klose and Piratbyrån produced in occasion of the exhibition "Piratbyrån and Friends" curated by Rachel Falconer and Furtherfield.
Started in 2007/2008 and continuing as an onging experimental painting technique, Black Hawk Paint utlizies drone as a means for creative application. The drones paint completely unique abstract art onto a canvas laid horizontally on the gallery floor over the period of the work. Each painting takes anywhere from an hour to eight to create.
Part performance piece, part political statement, it hopes to create feelings of conflict within the viewer; a romance of drone technology and creative expression.
