DASH
begins with footage of an accident captured from a dashcam. Bearing witness to the crashes and collisions that occur within spaces of transit, the vast accumulation of such footage on the Internet can be said to constitute a contemporary index of the accident. Reflecting specifically on the view from the dashcam that captures the mobile subject’s forward rush into the horizon as it escapes a scene of accident, the lecture considers the modes of legibility that enable the accident—or crisis—to appear as such within a risk-managed and financially hedged era. Of special interest is the logic of “horizon scanning” that undergirds the foresight programmes of the Singapore government. As a crucial node along the electronic circuits of global finance as well as the sweaty regional routes crossed by disenfranchised migrant labour, Singapore is held up within the lecture as a privileged site to attend to the disturbances or “weak signals” that crop up on the horizon, from which a fantastic speculative economy—one populated by the likes of “black swans” and “dragon kings”—is produced to affirm some narratives while extinguishing others.

This Lecture Performance is a public programme of Incomplete Urbanism: Attempts of Critical Spatial Practice.
