Love is a difficult notion, one that transcends time and space and all of those things. But imagine falling in love with a recording? It’s rather hard to imagine, so thankfully a graphic art, AV and performance-based project from producers John Foxx and Steve D’Agostino and visual artist John Karborn has done the hard work for us. Entitled Evidence of Time Travel , the record, live AV show and online visuals trace the poignant tale of a man who falls in love with the aforementioned abstract entity. John Karborn explains: “[He] cannot bear to be apart from her, so he records himself into the material as is if he had always been present.”
We learn more about this odd romance through a gorgeous series of gifs that recall early moving-image experiments from Psychic TV and the like, creating a work where the music and visuals form a searing, bewitching whole. All the sound and visual art was created using analog machines and “some very bizarre processes,” in John’s words.
