This work looks into the media ecology of the late Anthropocene with a focus on technological systems of looking, paired with human ways of seeing, memory, and neurological response. The work is a multi-channel video and sound composition that montages the artist's own content with television commercials, medical technological tool demonstrations, forensic footage, and satellite rotation footage. The sound incorporates vocal arrangements, analog modular synthesizer, and customized software for sounding space debris. The work can be experienced as a single channel, stereo mix, or as an immersive multi-channel AV installation.
