A semi-improvised audiovisual piece for AMOK #1 at the Stained Glass Centre in York, UK. Oscillating between embodiment and disembodiment. Contemporary and historic aerial photography mesh into an abstract aesthetic – it is a view from above untethered from an originating body and, thus, metonymically standing for dispersed networks and new, oblique forms of power; counterpointed by sonic improvisation accentuating the body and its breathing, the performance  attempted to find both simple and complex fluctuations between synchronicity and asymmetry, fixity and unpredictability.
