The perspective of perspective: A world mediated by a faulty image of the world

Julieta Aranda in collaboration with Tisha Mukarji

Composition for timpani, synthesized voices, string, and wind ensemble


VOICE 2: Gravity is just capital accumulated until it becomes weight.

VOICE 1: And so this is the capital weight of our material state: bound to the world… attracted by the world… gripped by the world… falling into the world at a steady 9.81 m/s2.

VOICE 3: If we think of the limit point of our imagination being marked by feedback loops, we can understand where the question of space lapses into a desire for another absolute.

VOICE 2: The ability of technological advancement is to do more and more with less and less until eventually you can do everything with nothing.

VOICE 4: …Producing proof of the things that you want to exist.
