Sparse ad hoc Networks for the Desert

posted on 16.12.2019, 13:31 authored by BENJAMIN JOHN BRADLEY
This project, Sparse ad hoc networks for the desert, establishes a specific postcolonial politics of mobility within the context of the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands in remote South Australia. I propose the notion of ‘extraterritorial space’, a term linked to the work of German author W.G. Sebald and employed within this project as a discursive methodology for navigating a foreign environment and a productive space from which to make an artwork. Using the theoretical structure of ‘nomadology’, a field of thought developed by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, the project tracks the development of several localised mobilities, from the point of first contact between Anangu (the people of the APY Lands) and early explorers in the late 19th century.
