PLANE OF THESEUS is a focus group on systems thinking, software virtualisation and corporate financialisation. It takes Boeing's 737 Max crisis, culminating in the 2019 grounding of the plane, as a case study to develop a conversation around those themes.

The focus group asks when and how a plane ceases to be a plane, analysing it both as a system able to impact its actions through virtualisation and as the product of a financialised system able to impact its own value (The Boeing Company).

Participants explore the topic producing screen based work which ranges from websites to games and film.Since 2019, PLANE OF THESEUS has been held as part of the MA Visuelle Kommunikation at Weissensee Kunsthochschule Berlin and as part of the BA Architecture and MA Moving Image at Ravensbourne University London.
