If we are to glitch, to smear, to distort, we must interfere.
Any process of creation inherently requires interference.
Interference is the interface between maker and matter. Source material must be interfered with if it is to be transformed. As artists, there are many ways we directly and indirectly expose our materials to interference, many ways we collaborate with transformative forces. Gravity. Pressure. Static. Our participation sometimes may only involve facilitating a chance operation.
This simple concept furnishes the space of making shared by Sara Goodman and Beatrice VS.
interference// is a vehicle for the artists' creative dialogue; an engine that allows them to pump material into a combustive space. Goodman and Schleyer freely interfere with one another's input in the non-competitive and loving domain of their long friendship.
interference// incorporates many languages: video, dance, projection, music, poetry....butoh, hip hop, noise...minimal and maximal glitch.
interference// is a system of creation where infinite permutations are possible. While core dynamics and treasured artifacts will always remain present,
interference// will never be finished, no performance repeated.
interference// grows with us.
