Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd December 2011
I will be in Plymouth to participate in the Finale Symposium for the British Art Show 7. With Tom Trevor, Director of the Arnolfini and using Self Portrait Arnolfini as our guide, we performatively inhabited 2061 and recalled from composite memeory, how we got there.
Singularity is overwritten by difference
With the evolution of assemblies for replication, singularity is overwritten by difference.
Everything is at once singular, everything can be narrated into singularity. Yet nothing is singular, everything can be bedded down into a flow of precedents and antecedents. The singular only exist at the level of the ideology, it disappears as we advance towards it. The singular is in essence a generic artefact, assembled from the minute and relative differences from within a defined series. And this drive to replicate, image for image, object to object, sound to sound, word for word is how we make the know world; and, that world known to one another.
