As we further the scientific explanation of our existence the less we require mythology. This work is an exploration of that attitude. A collage of ‘fact and fiction’, quotes, web logic, ‘truth and lies’, the work is an exploration of how the structured argument appears to offer a truth, of how fact and fiction are easily intertwined online where there exists an equality of importance. We always have our stories, but how are they told in a world of cut ‘n’ paste?
I was in residence at Camden Arts Centre from 5 – 11 September preparing a performance of a new work – the video of the performance is above.
The hyperlogical mythology of things tells tales of our ancestors
Myth making is a structure and is read in many ways including as a pre-scientific way of understanding the world, the precursor to or result of ritual, allegory and truth. Radical typology reads myth as a way of taking our structures forward through a process of re-reading, re-writing and recreating. This process allows us the space into which we can project our beliefs and understanding into a narrative format, our stories impacting with our own history. Evans will spend the time at Camden examining how myth exists in the paradoxical space of an open internet where stories are shared by the action of cutting and pasting.
The Oral Tradition is a series of short projects focusing on performed narrative. The spoken word, from mythic folklore to the call centre script, is a strong influence in the work of both Jockum Nordström and Emma Hart and this programme has been developed in response to these evolving traditions. The performances take place over four weeks, drawing on diverse source material including epic poetry, digital history and contemporary social protest.
Two friends have a chat about the nature of things while someone else tries to learn a new technique. A short performance about what we know and how we get to know more.
