Scenario a) at the center of the room there is a body of water, an object of desire, a stage on the x and y of a complex plane. from its well bubbles celestial oscillations of (non)desire and (non)monuments. a burning ship fractal, a snap-shot of muscle beach with a cocoa butter scent. a portal to cat hair, BIN bottles, strobing lights, cumulous forms, voyeur channels.

Scenario b) at the center of the room there is only sound, intervals originating from the intersection of neural signals. a sonar mapping of oceanic timbre, sonic chatter combinations of cochlear and neural melodies, chirps, groans, bubbling oozes, primordial lasers, bells, greens, blues, performed services, electronic fibers, aural fictions.

Scenario c) at the center of the room there are no doors or windows. when explored, its walls extend further into x as its ceiling and floor fall into y. is this ever a room? destination-less travels and fictional dramas. water wood concrete camera rock wood mold paper channel water waste plastic signal acid light rock dirt tone camera.

MACGUFFIN: (Act 1)

Noodle tubes and hot tubs!
The first event of a continuous and ever-changing process. HOMECOMING! Committee has transfigured andX Art Space into an expansion of the collective’s creative brain space. The hot tub serves as a creative soup to catalyze conversation, concepts and creation. The ceremonious filling of the hot tub begins with nagashi-sōmen (流しそうめん flowing noodles) where Sōmen noodles are placed in a long flume that carries clear, ice-cold water. As the sōmen pass by, participants pluck them out with their chopsticks and dip them in tsuyu. The runoff from this action is pumped into the hot tub as a base for the creative soup and the amalgamation of the collaborative process. This is the starting point of a series of events, actions, and transformations that will take place throughout the course of exhibition
