THE ETHER AND YOUR ANGER
The Ether and Your Anger presented an action, which consists in throwing blackened marbles of different sizes against a wall. The speed with which I throw the marbles gradually increases but never reaches a climax. The action investigates the idea that a terminal is like a sink of attraction that draws us toward it, as by a gravitational force, but sooner spins us off like a centrifugal force. The world doesn’t stop at our anger. An angry word or deed snowballs into an unfolding drama sweeping us and all around us along. We are always living in a centrifugal hurtle to a next effect. Rather than arriving at end-objects, or fulfilling objective end, we are carried by wavelike tendencies, in a rollover of experiences perpetually substituting for each other.
