The New Anxiety
The 300+ year technologies built to capture, understand and connect the world - from maps through geostationary satellites to contemporary algorithms and big data collection - have been exposed as weapons-grade systems that pluralise reality and destabilise the present.

You, Copiphora gorgonensis
MICHAELBRAILEY & Callum Coomber (2020), 60'
"'You, Copiphora gorgonensis' is an hour-long meditative experience for online audience focusing on interspecies relationships, psychoacoustics and presence.
"Over five stages, participants undergo a metamorphosis into Copiphora gorgonensis, a grasshopper-like insect that - despite 650 million years of evolutionary divergence - miraculously shares our human inner ear structure. Listening, insectoid body-modding and time travel are used to position the interconnected sounding present within the vastness of space and evolutionary time." (MICHAELBRAILEY & Callum Coomber)
