Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Ritual

Rituals are inherently rooted in repetition. Born from sequences of set actions performed time and time again, these gestures are prescribed a specific meaning upon its conception (if original) or adoption (if transmitted or inherited). Stretching across religious and cultural practises to tedious habits in the daily grind, these "rituals", mundane or uncommon, are ceaselessly reperformed, reproduced and replicated. As this repetition relentlessly continues, what then of the rituals' original or preceding meaning and significance? What is preserved and what is forgotten? What degrades and what thrives?

This work explores change in rituals and its inherent nature of repetition. Through articulations of distortion, warping and re-sampling visual and sonic media, it attempts to uncover, conceal and bask in a frenzy of meaning and non-meaning.
