Annunciation of the visitor. Into the abyss...
Charles Ray recall.
Intermittency-like weather pattern. Chaos.
Event and temporal alignment contrasted (or in parallel) with spatial design of exhibition.
Moments of synchronicity?
Contingency and reflexivity (annunciated audience and installation; performers all complicit with the work and its social milieu).
Culture as nature. Hive mentality.
Integrating interior/exterior conditions.
Various states of matter (density, flow (time)).
Surfaces wearing away. The opposite of cumulative effect. Negation as a long way towards positivity.
Recall MOCA "Ecstasy" and Whitney Biennial 2006...
Milling, sensing, touching...
Hans Haacke (phenomenal/sociopolitical)
Happenstance and chance. In the work and in the viewing space.
Both recall works (MOCA "Ecstasy" and Whitney Biennial 2006) in the same darkened room.
Longing and nostalgia in the audio.
An overall calming effect. Reconciling distraction, disruption, discontinuity...
Forces of nature in concert with forces of culture.
