AUTOPILOTO, a 24-hour live online radio broadcast about all things self-driving hosted from a semi-autonomous vehicle looping the Bay Area November 15+16, 2018. Transmitted in English, Spanish and Vietnamese, this broadcast takes up questions of how autonomy and automatic movement will shape Bay Area geographies, societies, and cultures. Considering self-driving as technology, psychological state, anthropological condition, and systems. What will our cities sound like in a driverless future? How will society and infrastructure systems adapt? What might humans do during newfound transit time? In what ways do machines imitate human auto-pilot modes, and vice versa? How can we build equitable, planetary, intelligent transit for all? AUTOPILOTO will include translingual interviews with local drivers, designers, technologists, municipal agents, researchers, artists, scientists, mechanics and more, as well as soundscapes and music.
AUTOPILOTO is a commissioned project by the Lucas Artist Residency at the Montalvo Art Center, as part of the New Terrains Festival produced by the San Jose Museum of Art. This broadcast is co-hosted with Trami Cron of Chopstick Alley, special guests will include voices from the SETI Institute, Stanford University, Nissan, San Jose Jazz, UC Berkeley, and more.
