The video for  biphasic | The Matter of the Soul, will be screened for the first time at Architecture and the Senses, a symposium organised by the Agosto Foundation at National Technical Museum – Center for Architectural Heritage Plasy, Mathey Hall, Plasy Monastery, Opatská konírna.

biphasic is the first movement of The Matter of the Soul symphony. This three-part symphony explores the relationship between human movement and the dispersal of Arctic water, creating in the process digital artefacts that disperse online. It is an elaboration of identity and meta-identity in the shifting times of climate crisis, interweaving socio-politics, individual needs and desires, and global impacts of human activity.

In biphasic, two discrete entities exist alongside each other, but not together, not mixing.

The Matter of the Soul | Symphony will première in its entirety at Howard Assembly Rooms, Opera North in Leeds, UK, on the 23rd October.  Tickets available here.
