This is a talk about heaps and mounds, butcheries and feasting, stone, bone and sintered nylon, deposition into water, into earth and into the cloud. Sink or swim. Call it an APZ or accident potential zone, the ground is shifting, disciplinarities are recalibrated. In particle physics, an annihilation event occurs when a subatomic particle collides with its respective antiparticle to produce other particles. A particle collision is a useful metaphor for the unruly and generative process of transdiciplinary exchange, of bringing disparate disciplines and generations into contact.
Annihilation Event is an ongoing project about copies, prints, scans, derivations, reconstructions, casts, and virtual models. Here an idea of the contemporary might be bringing different times into relation with one another through the agency of a Neolithic chalk lump, a Renaissance portolan chart, the collective assembly of a digital idol and the live destruction of an image sensor.
