All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace

artiste(s): Adam Curtis

All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace (2011) is a series of three documentaries about the way we have been colonized by the machines we built ourselves. Curtis shows the emergence of self-organizing systems and the relationship to our faith in computers.

Episode 2 : The Use and Abuse of Vegetational Concepts (53 min.)
This episode investigates how machine ideas such as cybernetics and systems theory were applied to natural ecosystems, and how this relates to the false idea that there is a balance of nature. Cybernetics has been applied to human beings to attempt to build societies without central control, self organising networks built of people, based on a fantasy view of nature.


Entrée : 5 €. Gratuit avec le Discovery Zone Pass.
