“All must not be art. Some art we must disintegrate.” Patti Smith | 1979 | 25th Floor
In this looped footage fragment, a Royal College of Surgeon’s gynaecologist speaks directly and authoritatively to the camera about the processes of gestation and birth, but his voice cannot be heard. A line appears across the image, then a scratch, and another… As the film disintegrates, the soundtrack – multiple radio channels and interference – reflects and feeds back into the images to create a hypnotic, immersive experience.
RUB OUT THE WORD.
