PLANE OF THESEUS is a focus group taking Boeing's 737 MAX crisis, culminating in the 2019 grounding of the plane, as a starting point to discuss system thinking, software virtualisation and financialisation.

The focus group asks when and how a plane ceases to be a plane, unpacking it both as a system able to impact its actions through virtualisation and as the result of a system able to impact its value through financialisation. Participants explore the topic producing screen based work.

Since 2019, PLANE OF THESEUS has been held as part of the MA Visuelle Kommunikation at Weisensee Kunsthochschule Berlin and as part of the BA Architecture and MA Moving Image at Ravensbourne University London.
