Abstract:

“Even if you don’t possess thousands of ommatidia like me it would be worth going” The fly.

Lost in A Sea of Glass and Tin is a mixed media live work of light, sound, projection and voice.

It responds to David Lynch’s concept of ‘the eye of the duck’, particularly with regards to what the eye can teach us about repetition, texture, shape and the colour of performance. We play with cross-fertilizations of art forms between Lynch’s noireesque cinema and a distortion of gestures for the singing body once explored by medieval hermits and in solitude. We draw upon our own fascination and observations of a seaside entertainer who week in and week out sings the classics and to his heart’s content along with the energy and commitment of his super fans.

What does it mean to leave everything we ever knew behind? Take off and live a life of solitude? Where can we go and what can we become?

Lost in A Sea of Glass and Tin premiered at The Defibrillator Gallery Chicago and is touring the UK.
