AND ALL THINGS RETURN TO NATURE by Brooke Stamp
An omnipotent field of sound vibration and frequency through motion.
An exploration of sound transmission and spatial experiences of time as a reflection on the rhythmic play of creation; of complex systems in both physics and ancient cosmologies.
Inspired by Baruch Spinoza's God-As-Nature principle and avant-garde jazz innovators John Coltrane, Don Cherry and Sun Ra's interests in eastern metaphysics, And All Things Return To Nature is Stamp's culminative work of her long-term obsession with the ephemeral codes that govern the greater scale of existence.
TOMORROW by Phillip Adams
A journey into the cult brain that builds.
After travelling to the Mojave Desert in California to experience and document The Integratron - a small and curious building built in the 1950s by metaphysics and UFO enthusiast George Van Tassel to essentially communicate with aliens, Adams explores cult conviction and the idea of utopia cohabiting with nature as the ultimate transformative force.
Tomorrow is a performance constructing an architectural installation, a spatial oddity of sonic and design interactions. Collaborating with architect Matthew Bird to recreate an imagined abduction, both artists seek to create a “tomorrow” utopia; an unsettled universe desperate to gather, confirm and sexualise a superlative energy united by a utopian impulse to liberate the mind.
