Conceived in the week of J. G. Ballard’s earthly demise, in tribute to German comic cosmonaut Perry Rhodan (b.1961), on the 40th anniversary of the moon landing; a dystopian space opera printed in lurid ‘Golding-colour’, with materials gleaned from the remnants of a deceased estate. Triple layered, RBG filtered film projections are manipulated by the performer’s intervention to create a shifting colour field composed of the same images submerged and revealed. Printed optical sound on each of the three loops of films generates a phasing noise track.
