This questioning doesn’t produce anything but a line of questioning.

Digital projection, hypertext, metal box

This lecture-performance and artist talk was given at the MIT Media Lab and Process: In Medias Res symposium at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts in 2013 and 2014. I navigate a branching hypertext sequence while reading a script and talking to the audience. There is a metal box in the room.

Above is a video adaptation.

Since I made the box, it looks to me like it’s in the middle of falling apart. These look like edges, but I keep noticing that they are not. They are gaps that show one edge multiplying into two, or two edges not quite converging into one.

This tells me that the process of forming implies a process of breaking. And these two events converge at the corner. I stare at the corner...
