The object as fetish and icon. Within the image (saturated in colour) and the sound (sampled and contorted), beauty and revulsion, hope and despair still linger. A confusion of memory and observation. A confusion of meanings in symbols and narrative. A confusion of order in disorder. 'There is special providence in the fall of a sparrow, if it be now, 'tis not to come, if it be not to come, it will be now, if it be not now, yet it will come, the readiness is all.' - N.G.S.
