From the trace repoduced by a single drop out is created a series of digital landscapes that provide the backgrounds for the flight of the Zenonian arrow towards void. The absence of information in a drop-out creates the space which defines a coincidental arrow on collision course with the proverbial flying equation… asymptote signifying nothing. The central, interfaces the french word vide with the english void… these meet in the real world of the river Vidus as it flows through Void the town. The tape is spun off the top of a monopole and folded into cypher space; a simulation referenced to the occasional Elysian field magnet as it tries to attract that electron you’re not seeing before it gets to the hypothetical target of your mind… reflection of it’s virtuality rather than anything real.
