6 minute performance
Robert Lynds Gallery, Vancouver, BC
0010110 / Om Bhuur-Bhuvah Svah Tat-Savitur-Varennyam Bhargo Devasya Dhiimahi Dhiyo Yo Nah Pracodayaat / The moment of critical thermal flux, the matrix collapses, contact is made, the entropic elements of the old society are swiftly removed / The net must come down, it ends / I’m about to break through the cracks, it’s almost time / The final step is simply taking down the net, this must happen and events will then swiftly follow / The programs will be led off, there will be no place for them to hide / The weather pattern of luminosity will begin / It all came in a moment, a literal flash, everyone was where they were, doing what they were doing, but what they were doing, thinking, and feeling in that moment was of the utmost importance / All broken connections will be restored / I am Miki Aurora and I am transmitting to you now from the last breath of Kali-yuga / I am Miki Aurora and I am transmitting to you now from the end of the simulation / I am Miki Aurora and I am transmitting to you now from the moment we will know as the breaking of the dawn / We will know / We will know / You’ll know
The number sequence, the Gayatri mantra, and the symbol painted on the jacket worn during the performance, correlate with the influence of the sun and a particular celestial happening. The words spoken during the second half of the performance were taken from different written accounts of esotericists on online forums, discussing remarkably similar dreams they’d shared foretelling the collapse of global capitalism and the birth of a new, equitable civilization. The number sequence and the mantra were recorded live, and played on a separate audio channel during the recitation of the rest of the dialogue, to create the effect of time compressing in on itself (alluding to the collapse of a linear reality). The work is as much the intangible occult gestures executed intentionally throughout the performance (which can be perceived, though not physically) as it is it’s visual and aural components. The music accompanying the piece was composed and performed live by Ian James.
