with accompanying film & sound score
Video & photo documentation by : kb Thomason
Audio composed with a base track genereated from Stephane Pigeons recordings of cave stalactites played with timpani beaters and features overlays of 7 ceramic bells and various field recordings.
From static origins
soft ambiguity emerges, as in all creation myths formless…
and yet, simultaneously
a varied amalgam of elemental vastness.
The stuff of teeth and blood cave walls and volcanic calderas.
An enciphered testament
to inescapable cycles
and an indefinable positioning
along the short - sighted spectrum of beginning —— end
plasticity — - rigidity.
For all things are formed from the remnants of something else.
Via vitrification :
The soft forms are frozen
by the heat of half a star
rapid - petrification
preserving a few fractions of a moment
when measured pressure
of forms against forms
molded into shape
avague sliver of an intention
that, without intervening force,
will outlast any memory
of the hands that pulled the form forth.
