In our current state of acceleration, change seems to have become the very basis of existence and an operational model for modern life.

Bringing together digital collage, print material, sound and sculpture I Should Be Doing Something Else Right Now explored the idea of change and its transformative or violent power through dynamic layered compositions.

In Sam Williams’ and Roly Porter’s newly commissioned film Salvage Rhythms, they picked up where their AGM performance left off. The film collages together sound and movement from the performance of the same title with original and found footage; animation and photography to create a dense and decaying compost of human and non-human entanglement.

Vivienne Griffin’s sculptural compositions looked at the power in changing oneself; playing with the superficiality of self-obsession through self-reflection, whilst also looking towards it as a powerful tool, as a solution.

my pronouns are gender is complex set of experiences and systems that interrelate and we should work towards understanding one another’s entanglements within them is an interactive work by rkss & Laura Fox, which uses excavated music and objects in conjunction with AR, to create an immersive digital experience exploring gender as a relational process; while engaging with our collective cyber-materiality.

Works from Rhea Storr and Maeve Brennan talked to each other about the relation between images and structural change: is the ritual of editing images and layering or replicating publicly accessible content an act of power and resistance or an act of violence?
