Grounded-- Pulsating 

During the winter of 2023-2024, I operated radio uncertainty from my studio at the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center. The station was open for the community, functioning in a random and spontaneous manner, accommodating the signals from the collective and the act of falling between frequencies. Grounded-- Pulsating presents these signals, translated into video, prints, home-made radio receivers, and a love letter to (radio) uncertainty.

Beyond the Beyond,
an otherwhere—
grid of old-growth
+ graphite, shadow-
strokes.

We fueled
the prairie-fire, our engine
for art in afterburn
toward burnout,
exhaust, exhausted, hot
to the touch.

Shrug off your
everyday-skin,
callused by the
frictions + deep-push
of capitalism. Put on
a Cetacean way of being.
Become part
of a collective
celebrating in useless
practices + undoings—
passivities done for
pleasure despite progress
+ green-gain.

More about Collection of Undoings






Collection of Undoings

‘Undoings’ is an ongoing video project that compiles selections from a crowdsourced archive compiled of ‘useless’ activities. The project was first time developed within the framework of 16Nicholson Street Gallery's 2021 curated programme and show in the same gallery as a part of 'Flock Circumstance' group exhibition by Madde Edlund, Aga Paulina Mlynczak and Tinja Ruusuvuori, curated by Aga Paulina Mlynczak.
