Sat 11/12 8:30 PM Indexical [Tannery Arts Center 1050 River St. #119 Santa Cruz]
Debuting at Indexical, HALO FOR WORLD SYSTEM extends DROUGHT SPA’s interest in global logistics systems and analyses of value, art, and capital. For this performance, cruse has created a paratext of reference materials sourced from her corpus of critical theory, poetry, and prose written over the past five years. Books referenced therein are then scanned by cruse and Lo, and used as primary inputs for a cybernetic assemblage of language, imagery, and sound. Playing their bar codes and textual material as digital instruments, DROUGHT SPA examines the book as both aesthetic object and commodity.
