Fluid Things considers how an orientation to objects as vibrant things is an orientation to flux and open futurity. The installation includes video projection of a vessel captured using a 1970s Rutt/Etra video synthesizer — an analogue raster manipulation device for real-time video animation — and photographic manipulation using the raster graphic digital image editing software, Photoshop, to engage with the vibrant thing’s orientation to possibility and indeterminate variation. Fluid Things is an intervention into binary thought patterns that have dominated Western ontologies, and that separate the animate human from a perceived inanimate landscape.
