The Heart of the Whirlpool

The Heart of the Whirlpool (4-7 March 2020) is an audio-visual piece and performance developed with poet and writer Tice Cin. This work was commissioned by The Borough Road Archive Collection.

ABOUT

This collaborative work stems out from the vorticists’ archive preserved at The Borough Road Archive Collection, London. Tice and I worked to reframe the british avant-garde group’s ideologies of machines and modern-age dynamisms from a contemporary standpoint. The work consists of a projected animation, a printed manifesto and a sound piece. A ~35’ performance opened the exhibition on Friday 6th March.


“What is the radical potential of extracting our imaginations from the limited modalities of the robot worker's body and the need to create with a capitalist incentive? What does a machine sound like if it is just permitted to exist? At the intersection of all the energy in an entity is a great silence, worth listening to and analysing.”
