No Apologies for the Interruption
An image-text exploration of post-piracy media encounters
What kinds of questions do lives gather within them as they move between the multiple worlds inside a city and the devices that shape the manifest city? Inside each of lurks a potential to create. It is through our recognition of our own potential that we connect with others. We make for ourselves occasions to actively fashion this world and, in this way, to take it in.
Expressions and frameworks abound all around us, outside us. It is when we speak and give shape to our imaginations that our desire to find new ways of living, to create dream worlds and to collide with what is outside us, gathers velocity. Where despair and despondency of life are withdrawn and you say "I can do it", new travel routes open out.
Power creates rules, makes many implements to reign in possibilities and the impulses to create. But force of life cannot be contained; it bursts through anyway. Energy travels from body to body; each environment germinates countless more.
It is of such questions, imaginations and collisions that "No apologies for the interruption" is an expression.
