Below is the work Burnt Savage . As Well as the music I have written a poem The work is based around different social mediations of technology and consumption. Having seen Georgina Born at the british academy a few days ago I thought now was the right time to air this work for a while.
Burnt is the savage that replaced the light ,that watched our sun lower into roof tops and houses.that slaughtered and stilled to the dance mauled its mis used technologies ,
issuing drones of functionless activity
together we are,
High screaming, fierce force and brutal,driving liquid spaces apart while pretending to sleep.
Pretending to sleep on a stomach full of cake and leu .While sleep is the food beyond purchase we become burnt around the edges of a haphazard life.
Mistakes that lead to disasters with finite technologies , small to be viewed and yet the nemesis of desire . We burn, we are burnt. With a savage desire, we watch , we are burning. We are beyond sleep.
High scream, fierce force and brutal need.Stones thrown,beer drunk and cain. Franchise of Innovation. Invisible to the touch with rights that are covered beyond.All disks are lost and run to desperate need.Burnt yellow becomes the light with bitter grey driving from the car a burnt yellow becomes our light.
Plastic advertising,charm us to final phone statements and debt beyond control and why and where is impossible to comprehend. Almost as if it is written in to our biological being our blood , our rate of heart , our excess is out of control. A tragic loss, for to much is beyond our consumption.
Have we lost our way? burnt through and out of our known pathways of understanding.Dripping of flesh and stinking dirt, our bodies embellished with additive materials coded into our skins, a generation in transition.
Desperate new narratives and acquiring.
together we are.
Healed and Refreshed
