Nidus - Accumulations

  • Ratio 283 College St Toronto, ON, M5T 1S2 Canada (map)

Nideans are creatures of temporal magnitudes, chronoprospectors surfing the möbiusoïdal machinations wherein materials become wholly alienated. The drone is their natural habitat; a conceptual and visceral space in which bodies are retuned and thought is molecularized. Scales are crossed without warning, normative half-lives of gestures stretched across qualitative boundaries. The French understand its darker vectors: "avoir le bourdon" is to vibrate at a ruminative frequency, where focus is dispersed, horizontalized. A ground, shifting, against which dynamic processes can be scrutinized in their unfolding. The thicket-texturing typical of Nidean ventures affords manifold entry points, trajectories tripping categories by sheer durational momentum, confusions, convolutions. A festering ecology where lateral collusions and tunnels of autonomy magically coexist. Multiple nests (nidi), points of origination, accumulation, baiting and switching, the whole ungraspable, eluding the demons of containment.

We invite you to partake in a 6-hour symbiotonotopic experiment August 16 between 5 PM and 11PM. Ingress and egress are at your discretion.
