Total Disintegration

Total Disintegration is a tracing from the ORE project, focused on 1920s avant-garde cinema, where everyday objects, bodies fractured and prismatic, dissolve into and through each other.  This work is a live cinematic generation created in the studio, working with videos as paint in a palette.

Below is the latest evolution of the text matched to this tracing:

total disintegration

a whole that remains

in an age of readymade
erotic motion yields
machine reproductions

a dance of avatars
recreated as spiritual matter

times inside out

the force of man
being modern

Total Disintegration was created as part of an installation and live cinematic performance exhibited in {cinema poesis} at the Emily Harvey Foundation, in NYC on April 30th, 2010.

The project was curated by L Brandon Krall and the work showed with the films of William Stone. Many thanks to both of them for their support in helping make this work possible.


The ORE project is a live cinematic performance piece that mines seminal video and sound works of the 20th century to generate new narratives for the 21st.
