Filmed at Wayne McGregor Studios October 2020.
Film experiment, 18:36 min.

This film experiment serves as both documentation and a further staging of the performative work, reverberating interferences – explorations into thingness, that took place over three days during October 2020 at the Wayne McGregor Studio 2. The work intertwines indeterminacy (Barad) and the uncertainty of change (Rose) through patterns of movement and countermovement set in motion by bodies—human and others. By necessity, the conditions of Covid-19 restrictions were integrated into the planned concept. The work attempts to track primarily human actions and modulates their ongoing reverberations of interference before these sediment and become planetary memory. Things shape us by the way we shape them. Reverberating interferences initiated in intra-actions (Barad) become audible as sounds, voices, noises, and non-acoustic signals (gestures). Making these audible as emerging from movement in and across matter—water, air, climate, earth, plants, animals, and humans— hopes to create an awareness that will allow them to seep and condensate differently to incite a process of un/learning.
