What is the shape the body takes amidst a deluge of information? Missing Interiors presents a variety of discrete visual and auditory stimuli while asking what they feel like.
Missing Interiors is a finite element analysis of a corporeal form as it is pressed up against glowing screens. Finite because, despite the pursuit of endless growth, the body has its limits. After the volume is filled, the torrent just washes against the surface. All it can do is make an impression.
Watch Akil lead a spoken ASMR tour of a world built from screens as his boneless body slips between the surfaces.
The BLEED ECHO Reference Group projects are original artworks responding to and ricocheting from the five artist projects and curatorial conversations of BLEED.
- Presented by Arts House and Campbelltown Arts Centre as part of BLEED 2020.
- Lead artist: Akil Ahamat
- BLEED is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, City of Campbelltown through Campbelltown Arts Centre and City of Melbourne through Arts House.
