Event description

Mono-Poly September will be a lesson in hums, vibrations and other forms of celestial (mis)communication, with work from Chi Tran, Aarti Jadu and Subject Δ (Tinh Than), curated by Jacqui Shelton and Mel Deerson.

The universe hums inaudibly to itself, calls heaven, calls earth. Hello? Hello? Are you close by? Mm hmmm, mmm hmmmm, mmmmmmm. Turn the fridge on i wanna hear it. Turn the lights on i wanna sing them. Let the car purr. On the other end of the phone, the wind says shhhhhh.

According to Pythagorus, the motions of planets in the heavens emit a continuous vibrational hum which is so pervasive, consistent and loud that earthly creatures mistake it for silence, having no point of comparison. What is it to be drenched, unknowing, in a universal song? How to tune into it, or push against it/speak over it, or hum along?

The curation of this evening continues the collaborative research Mel and Jacqui have been working on over the past year as Room To Create artists in residence at Florence Peel Centre, supported by City of Yarra.
