- Murmurs Archivist, Phase-1 Narrative
Murmurs, is evidence of a myth created to archive information before it evaporates from our galaxy’s supermassive black hole. Remote viewing techniques combined with ritual extract then preserve this fragile data stream by recording information stored in black hole radiation. Performance, photo-documentation, video, and objects guide the viewer along this quest as radiation is converted into analysis; ultimately learning that the information stored in black holes is vital to our perception of reality and leaves us with a destiny intertwined.
