Broken Surface

foil, aluminium tape, amplifier, piezo disc, wires, coloured lights

‘broken’ sits in a queer state of disruption. 

being broken is being passively taken apart, then exist in despair,
being broken forces you into an abnormal path, then you find your own agency within it,

to enter it is to break it, everything contributes, everything breaks it further

an amplified bodily presence,
or you don't even care,
every act plays a part.

each time when you step on the surface, you break it, actively.
each breaking point opens up space that folds into itself, a space for new space to emerge.
even with flat surfaces, each folds into multiplicity

or being broken is being destroyed, then revealing with it is the tender rawness wrapped in the deceptive glamour
