FROM THE DEAD AIR ORGY: On The Nature of Things

FROM THE DEAD AIR ORGY is a series of five broadcast chapters being transmitted live from a hidden location somewhere on the outskirts of Helsinki. Each broadcast reveals a developing narrative from a location an audience can now no longer enter.

The broadcasts revolve around the poem On The Nature of Things by the Roman poet Lucretius (c.99BC - c.55BC). His epic work explores a scientific reading of the world through physics and atomic theory: that everything that exists is made up of matter and empty space and that atoms are the building blocks of what we perceive as reality.

From The Dead Air Orgy gathers Lucretius’s poem and uses it as the perimeter to ask a series of questions about the future of the universe using an Artificial Intelligence text generator. This text is then transmitted through each of the broadcasts along with other inexplicable events taking place within the location and its surroundings.

A network evolves of covert exports, hidden caves, survivalist prepping, prophecies and pole dancing.
