I co-produced this project with artist Emma Lilwall as part of Bristol Art Weekender 2014.


BSDeathdrive was an off-line file sharing network actively rejecting the online and virtual world to create an anonymous, untraceable, underground activity mapping the city of Bristol. 

The Deathdrives (USB sticks) were installed at accessible public locations and art organisations across Bristol discoverable via a network map. Acting also as a distribution tool kit for artists, and taking it's name from Freudian psychoanalytic theory, as the drive towards death and self-destruction, the subversive network it creates and the files shared, aim to initiate a range of activities.

Files were routinely gathered from the Deathdrives by Emma and myself and the resulting files turned into an installation at Spike Island Open Studios 2014.
