From XPUB & Lens-Based wiki

Radical Software was an exhibition inspired by a recent interest in the effects of cybernetics in arts. It was named after the magazine on video art from mid 70's, but specially after a quote by ANT FARM where they compare weed and video art as possible radical softwares for the mind. I consider the exhibition as a start point on my research on Cybernetics, a term that I still not fully understand. It worked as an empirical research on the subject.

It was a mix of intellectual discourse by academics and artists lecturers paired with a music/sound act. The space was prepared with a series of audio visual stimulations, as a video-art exhibition. Creating a noisy experience on the realms of technology.

Despite organizing the program and designing the space, three pieces were created by me in order to support the construction of the space.
