Severing and Abstaining
Utilizing custom software triggered by a drum performance, a tension emerges between the stillness of the natural world and the cacophony of political life around the globe. Undoubtedly, we begin to draw connections between the environment and political action, both spheres actively pressured by crisis of one sort or the other. The live components of noise and drums heighten the tension and contribute to the physicality of viewership, we are implicated in all forms of crisis along with the drummer whose silhouette dances with the flowers and the riot police.
