Role of artist not as author but as translator, activator, reckoner; the momentary plasma that enables the lightning bolt.
Sculpture as heretic form of architecture, the un-building of architecture that is the experience of space as the building process.
Heretic language as muted (mutant) voices colliding and ricocheting against/away from a ‘forward-marching’ linear time of capitalist progress. New sound describing future origins.
Becoming non-human to be disposed of, a position of language broken and hence sculptural rebuilding from a skeletal place of being. Fluid body as proprietor of change, welcoming (loving) the uncomfortable position of being in flux (khaos). Exploded subjectivity.
Origin-building, or building from an origin, a depth (void) occurring just before or just after an explosion. The music of the event of the non-human’s speech will move.
Needing to think about sculpture as not-art but a shifting, authorless space within the kosmos, and its situation as a public place of finding meaning, not a room but a door. PLACE as public space, common ground and see-through, accessible to human and non-human entities. Street detritus, weather, birds etc having as much input/presence as humans.
Sculpture as a language that communicates through co-existence (building).
