THE END, THE END, THE END..., 2017
THE END, THE END, THE END…, is a revolutionary performance collage at the end of the world, in America, on utopia. An international collaboration between 7 countries & 6 U.S. states and a nexus of multimedia practices, THE END… collages its creators’ exiles in America into a survival ritual. It is a call to arms to enlist in the revolution of turning America inside-out.

Ultrasonic video sensors respond to distance and motion, and activate media content that partners the performers as their own spectres of past and future. Video draws from a vast database of analogue and digital materials that correspond to the wide spectrum of our personal and cultural relationship to media. Included is chance curation of daily news. The raw texture and kinetic movement of video represents the physical process of remembering.
