Scenes from a common world

I am working with an international group of artists on a collaborative film project called "Laura, or Scenes from a Common World" that will be shot in Norway during July 2015.  More on this project as it develops.

From Square Top Theatre:

Now in production, our next original work explores the borderlands between film, theatre, dance, literature, and the contemporary fine arts. Laura combines visceral physicality, lyrical poetry, and evocative cinematography to explore one woman’s struggle to make herself at home in the world. Her struggle begins as a common one. A boy has left her. In losing him, she becomes less sure of the roles other people play in her self-creation. She seeks security in isolation only to find that landscape, community, and physical embodiment all ground who we are in ways she cannot escape. In this spare five-part drama, inspired by Ovid’s Apollo and Daphne myth, audiences see Laura seeking freedom by running away from the world, yet finding freedom, ultimately, in rootedness.
The project draws together artists from across the globe. Director Charles M Pepiton (USA/Washington), poet Damon Falke (USA/Norway), and artistWes Kline (USA/New York) previously collaborated on Square Top Theatre’s Now at the Uncertain Hour, a theatrical event for live performance, online streaming, and broadcast radio, which reached a combined live onsite/offsite audience of 46,053 in its premiere performance. For Laura, this team will be joined by printmaker Rebekah Wilkins-Pepiton (USA/Washington), costume designer Leslie Stamoolis (USA/Washington), performer Alexandra Kazazou(Greece/Poland), and movement director Daniel Han (USA/Australia).
The film will be shot and the physical work will be composed in Tromsø, Norway, where the interaction of elements symbolically significant for the piece – water, fire, earth – are dramatized by the land itself. The resulting production will exist as a film, as a gallery installation, and as a live theatrical production built to tour. In Norway, Laura finds the “acres of redemption” she seeks. She discovers that she must create her life out of what the world gives her – a boy picking apricots, an old woman shaping a boat, a father, a river, a stone.

Sketch for Teen Romance (Triangles)

After a nuclear war, there is a second nuclear war, even bigger than the first. This causes mutations among the survivors of the first nuclear war, eventually killing them after a period of painful radiation poisoning. Several teens survive however; to be exact, three teens. These teens start a new civilization and also a love triangle. Many guns were left over from the war, although some had melted in the nuclear explosion. The teens make a pile of these guns on a table that was undamaged from the nuclear explosions, both the first and the second explosion. Somehow this table had survived while all the other people on the planet aside from these teens had not. The pile looks like a pyramid. They enjoy a meal of baked beans, as that is the only food left on the planet. They also make a pact that no matter what happens, they will not repeat the mistakes of their parents. They sing a song, but not about the proletariat or anything. Most likely it is about love.

Positional Triangles and the Stereoscopic mechanism

The Air Loom, with its alliance of Euclidean geometry and paranoia, of obscure chemistry and conspiracy, of mechanics and psychiatry, of repressed science and politics, seems to provide a distorting mirror to scientific modernity, to inhabit a paradoxical space in which epistemic divides are all at once put to work, torn apart more sharply, and relaunched further. The Air Loom, understood as a world-making image that exteriorizes the interiority of a subject (however delusional), can thus be said to navigate a modern border, a frontier between an object of scientific attention (madness) and the technology by which this attention produces factual truth (the clinic): the boundary that both pulls apart and connects objectivity and schizophrenia.

from #ACCELERATE MANIFESTO by Alex Williams and Nick Srnicek

22. We need to revive the argument that was traditionally made for post-​capitalism: not only is capitalism an unjust and perverted system, but it is also a system that holds back progress. Our technological development is being suppressed by capitalism, as much as it has been unleashed. Accelerationism is the basic belief that these capacities can and should be let loose by moving beyond the limitations imposed by capitalist society. The movement towards a surpassing of our current constraints must include more than simply a struggle for a more rational global society. We believe it must also include recovering the dreams which transfixed many from the middle of the Nineteenth Century until the dawn of the neoliberal era, of the quest of Homo Sapiens towards expansion beyond the limitations of the earth and our immediate bodily forms. These visions are today viewed as relics of a more innocent moment. Yet they both diagnose the staggering lack of imagination in our own time, and offer the promise of a future that is affectively invigorating, as well as intellectually energising. After all, it is only a post-​capitalist society, made possible by an accelerationist politics, which will ever be capable of delivering on the promissory note of the mid-​Twentieth Century’s space programmes, to shift beyond a world of minimal technical upgrades towards all-​encompassing change. Towards a time of collective self-​mastery, and the properly alien future that entails and enables. Towards a completion of the Enlightenment project of self-​criticism and self-​mastery, rather than its elimination.

Alex Williams, Nick Srnicek, "#Accelerate: Manifesto for an Accelerationist Politics", Critical Legal Thinking blog, 14 May 2013; repr. in Dark Trajectories: Politics of the Outside, ed. Joshua Johnson, Miami: Name, Aug 2013; repr. in #Accelerate#: The Accelerationist Reader, eds. Armen Avanessian and Robin Mackay, Urbanomic, 2014. "We believe the most important division in today's left is between those that hold to a folk politics of localism, direct action, and relentless horizontalism, and those that outline what must become called an accelerationist politics at ease with a modernity of abstraction, complexity, globality, and technology."
