Parallax of Quantum: The Legacy of George Orwell’s 1984
Paul Miller, aka DJ Spooky, wants you to think about double-think and how we frame events, create meaning, and interact with our world. Join us for an evening of exploration and reflection on one of the world’s most influential science fiction works presented by an artist with a globally conscious mind.
The accomplished and socially minded composer, multimedia artist, and writer returns to The Church, post-summer residency, with a presentation of Parallax of Quantum, an exploration of the impact of George Orwell’s 1984. Join us as Miller presents the work, discusses the process, and invites you into a dialogue. Where are we collectively in the world of late capitalism and the fog created by the digital media flood of data and information? Where are you as an individual?
An exploration of George Orwell, Parallax of Quantum illuminates a study of the way we organize our thoughts and emotions to navigate through the deluge of information we confront in our ever-growing digital world. Commissioned by the Deep Water Literary Festival in tandem with the Orwell Foundation, the work invites audiences to a digitally narrated piece against a backdrop of Miller’s music composition, artwork, and graphics.
