Abstract

Spoken word and moving image performance that explores contemporary media as a cultural Fugue State: The universe is permeated with the odour of kerosene. The euphoric hyperbole of promised, online utopias has been subsumed by sprawling, banal, online malls populated bybored and angry ghosts, omnipresent, omniscient, so it would seem, yet dislocated and trapped. Trapped by the sheer mundanity of it all, trapped by the repetitive micro tasks we must perform daily, hourly, on trains, on buses, as we eat, before we sleep, when we wake,toxic click bait, cat memes, selfies and ‘fake’ news, likers, haters, unexpected items in the bagging area, do not reply. To protect your privacy some pictures in this message were not downloaded. Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?
