Previewed online to coincide with the launch of the 2012 Slow Boat voyage, The Cognitive Radio is a film that Sarah Browne has made with members of Ikon Youth Programme, arising through her research project with the group, Scarcity Radio. Set in an underused geology museum, the work explores links between metaphors of mining and telecommunications to challenge our understanding of scarcity, partly in response to last year’s riots in the city, as well as those in the 1980s. Currently in post-production, the film will be screened and released online in the autumn.
