POP TRAUMA (Version03SD: Elder Abuse) A musical performance.

After the neomodern structure fell on the side of our head we realized that we probably weren’t the stars of a science fiction anymore. They kept telling us to just go ahead and stare at the sun and that we wouldn’t have to eat again. We reached out for the lonely bush gardeners hand and he begged to know if we were “suffering from tropical trauma?” ”No sir, it’s strictly all pop here”, I replied. He recommended for us to abandon our bodies and do the lions pose with our faces, often. Yes it’s true, we are already looking younger, but nonetheless, something still hurt…

The dialectic of pop transperancy vs. low information. The fetishized low information in your bedroom varietal vs. Pop transperancy as occult. When did the occult associated with lo-fi switch to hi-fi as occult. Did Urban Outfitters co-option of lo-fi analog aesthetics move the hidden into the hyperreal over produced realm of the HD look?

It is a ritual to self-obliteration. It is communion. It is lonely. It is sacred. I could even say that many of my visual experiments have in some sense something to do with comjuring up the same feeling that one experience through listening to music. Perhaps all of the visual metaphors are just a translation to get closer to that affect of music.
