The Tower Anagogues

A ritual, an elevation, an elevated interpretation. A performance embodying the mysteries of the towers and their underground bulwarks, mouthing the unspoken words of desolation, bathing in the  daily bread, the solace of the individual embraced, a procession of the accumulated votive offerings of oblated mattresses, pointlessly shattered glass, lost keys and hidden doors.

24hr Tower People

We install ourselves in the foyer of the high rise tower for a twenty-four hour duration. During this time we celebrate birthday’s, take family polaroid portraits, conduct a survey titled “What is your favourite time”, liaise with the security, assist residents who have forgotten their FOB keys, observe and notate the poetic phenomena and personally congratulate people.

24hr Tower People

clouds are now and this
is the bottomless sleep,
time taken
is time best given away

child's eyes cling
whilst parents
drag their eyes away
