What goes up must come down. However what if that that goes up costs in the order of 40 million dollars and is an unmanned high-altitude spy plane with a sixty metre wingspan and a payload of cutting edge monitoring technology? And where does it come down? The project Autpilot considers this question with a model of the high-tech drone, the global hawk, which the Australian government has been considering for purchase to use as a front line maritime surveillance tool. Here, however, the drone finds itself wrecked and impotent as though it has plummeted out of the sky and crashed nose down, embedding itself into the wall of the gallery.
French essayist, Paul Virilio in the catalogue for the exhibition Unknown Quantity presented at the Fodation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris, 2003, discusses the notion of the invention of the accident, not as an unexpected unforeseen outcome, but as an inevitable and essential condition. To invent the train is to invent the derailment, furthermore, to invent the Very Fast Train is to invent a very fast derailment – a catastrophe.
Autopilot freezes this moment. The accident becomes strangely approachable, a comic book calamity, a Lichtenstein kaboom. The surveyor becomes the surveyed exposing its other state – oversight, fault. Autopilot, through its pop sensibility, acknowledges an earlier global hysteria, the McCarthy era ‘reds under beds’. However, will our high flying xenophobic eye perform to all expectations, and even if it does what might be the outcomes?

One Small Step for Dan – a saw and a suitcase, the anticipation of amusement captured in the static moment before the punchline. Exploring notions of vulnerability behind a false bravado. A sculptural self-portrait combining elements of hand made and ready made objects. Hey everyone come and watch the arse fall out from under me yet again….oh yeah you can laugh!
