Bypassing Cartography- part 1
Marc Garrett interviews Isabelle Arvers about the AntiAtlas of Borders
project. Control systems along land, sea, air and virtual state borders
are the subject of work and mutation for scientists, artists,
filmmakers, performers, hackers, customs agents, and workers in the
surveillance industries and the military.
This is the first of two interviews with Isabelle Arvers who has
collaborated with the IMERA team (the Mediterranean Institute for
Advanced Research of Aix-Marseille University), to curate this expansive
and dynamic project. The first interview discusses the operational side
of the project and the next interview examines selected writings,
artworks, projects and ideas featured as part of the project.
