The Periscope Project is pleased to announce Adaptable Sites: a double feature exhibition bringing together The Periscope Project Cooperative’s first collaborative project: Drone Ready-Made: Fine Military Detritus with artist, archivist and filmmaker Bill Daniel’s installation Tumbleweed Connection and film screening program Eden V.2.  Adaptable Sites will open with a special preview fundraiser event on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 (details below) and is presented in conjunction with the 2011 ART SAN DIEGO Contemporary Art Fair’s Art Labs program.  Through a showcase of media, performances and artifacts (including a modified transport crate for a Predator Drone UAV originally found on San Diego Craigslist), the exhibition will explore postindustrial collapse culture amidst San Diego, otherwise known as “America’s Finest City,” manifest destiny’s paradisiacal terminus; the military industrial complex’s golden boomtown.
