The Hole Idea
A performative lecture by Post Brothers
It’s a cubist bit of dark, an aperture in any surface, and yet a thing, physically promiscuous, malleable and expandable, foldable and rollable, poured, printed, or painted. IT does what it PLEASES. It’s behavior is as elastic as its form.
A project applied to different circumstances and constantly pulling information into its murky center, this lecture examines the aesthetic, philosophical and socio-political possibilities of the portable hole. A principle object in cartoon physics, the portable hole can serve as a tool to account for an irrational world through its myriad precarious properties.
