I am in the early stages of researching a cultural and technological history of fire in my moving image practice, where I propose that fire is a critical material of digital media.

torc is a failed research project proposal for a two-channel narrative video that draws investigative ties between recent and ancient histories. Emerging somewhere in between archaeological discoveries of gold hoards, concentric infrastructure in garden cities, the collapse of the DeLorean Motor Company, and displays of cars drifting in doughnuts, these circularities in time and shortcomings of design collapse into an enduring and recursive present that can’t quite get off the ground.
