INTERFERENCE is about unwanted signals that disrupt or construct movements of nature. It is about the interventions of patterns in history, time, signal and noise. ‘INTERFERENCE’ explores the concept of listening to the noise of history – moments that are insignificant in our collective memory. This presentation researches our techniques of remembering and the recollections of irrelevant episodes of unrecorded history. ‘INTERFERENCE’ is a space as well as an organism. This mediated space functions as an interactive installation and a performance environment where moving bodies, electronic sounds, visual documents and light are interwoven into a constantly changing artefact of unhistorical events. If history is a signal, then time itself must be recognised as noise – an infinitely complex mess of data that resists interpretation. Our project is therefore to listen to the noise of history – moments which yield no discernible signal. The insignificant events.
Herein lies a paradox. As artists, as humans, we have a natural impulse to transmute chaos into art. Is our goal then to reclaim the forgotten into the field of recorded time? Or should we resist in our representations of insignificant events our instinct to render them significant?
