Join us at e-flux on Friday, March 31, at 7pm with speculative architect Liam Young for the audio-visual performance, “I Spy with my Machine Eye,”  a filmic tour told from the perspective of a drone drifting across the planet. Based around his short film In the Robot Skies, the first fiction film shot entirely using preprogramed drones and accompanied by an original soundscape by acclaimed electronic producer Forest Swords, Young presents a near-future love story set against the fears and wonders of an impending drone age.

The evening is organized on the occasion of Young’s first solo exhibition in the US, Liam Young: New Romance, on view from March 30 to May 13, 2017 at the Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery, Buell Hall, Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP). 

Thursday, March 30, 6pm | Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery
Opening reception and discussion with Liam Young, Cristina Goberna, Julia Kaganskiy, and Irene Sunwoo
