A Geekosystem

A Geekosystem is a project by Julian Priest, David Merritt, and Adam Hyde. We have all been and are sometimes artists working with communities, technology, and anything else we find interesting. The Geekosystem itself is a system of geekery that takes places in art galleries and art spaces and invites local communities of geeks and non-geeks alike to come together and explore old technologies, discuss gadgetry, read old computer books, contemplate the ethics and ideologies of planned obsolescence, find new uses for hardware, make things, show others how to make things, and shred proprietary software manuals (and turn them into soil). A Geekosystem was shown at the Physics Room in Christchurch and then at The Green Bench during the Whanganui Open studio week. Full project information avaiable at A Geekosystem site.
