Screening: Dismal Session 003: Terence Sharpe / WHAT LUXURY IT WOULD BE TO DESCRIBE THIS RACE AS CEDED

WHAT LUXURY IT WOULD BE TO DESCRIBE THIS RACE AS CEDED (2019) is a visual companion to polemic A Ceded Interfile: Future-oriented Social and Cognitive Design published through The New Centre for Research and Practice’s &&& platform in July 2019. The video is a non-linear redux of the idea that two separate trajectories of man and machine is a false correlation rooted in bad humanism. The essay takes the field of Kansei or Affective Engineering as an example of a mechanism that sees the nature of man and machine as a kind of ouroboros to be - the collection of data is an open dragnet across the sea of content nature produces, but its manipulation and use on humans within their ecosystem requires a system of codification and divisive application – one that hasn’t been created yet, but one that companies like Cambridge Analytica have been able to convince people exists via a narrative engineered towards those blinded by banal pathologies of their own relevance. The video backdrop to these considerations is a quick and dirty assemblage of user generated content, both personal and salvaged, realising through rough aesthetics that the screen-based existence that has flattened the dynamics of the everyday and the enchanting, leaves a lot to be desired from our tale end whatever epoch we are currently passing through. This collection of work is complimented by the release of Foreign Hearing (2019) - the first iteration in a three-part series of electroacoustic compositions, drawing from live recordings, foley sound and synthesis. The pieces sit on a knife's edge between the halcyon and the turbulent, eschewing the theoretical branches of the project and allowing the music to breathe simply as a personal soundtrack to the exhilarating transience of the past decade.
