TURBULENT SURFACES II

Part II – One Dimensional Disco

27th July 2012

8-10pm

 

It all worked itself out naturally and well.
Every branch of science was fitted neatly
to the needs of the public,
and the various branches of science
were co-ordinated decently.

One Dimensional Disco contained a built structure, performances and a DJ set.

One Dimensional Disco was an artwork and exhibition. It was a blunt instrument constructed for this event at kynastonmcshine only.

One Dimensional Disco was an ad-hoc platform that included image, sound and text. Its disjunctive and tailor-made constructs acted as a closed vertical structure: an antagonistic surface.

One Dimensional Disco asserts itself beyond the contemporary cults of representation and interpretation; breaking definitively with the horizontal ground of narrativity perpetuated by the contemporary consensus of cause and effect.

One Dimensional Disco presented two performances and a DJ set by Material Conjectures. The DJ set was made up exclusively of work by The Algorithm, aka Remi Gallego, a 22 year old French artist who plays with a mixture of Black Metal, math-core electronica, Ska and Dub-Step.
