Foxes – Liz Rosenfeld
+ Hacklander \ Hatam
This is the invitation Liz Rosenfeld sent out to invite people to DIRT in Berlin:
“It is the future. There is an energy crisis and humans have accepted the fact that foxes are the only mammals left on earth with the ability to reproduce. We can only create energy for our daily needs through the harnessing of sexuality. We are called to duty to devote our sexual energy to the non-procreative survival of humanity.——This is an anti desire desire. This is a need. For. To . Action.——Calling on the future hive mind, comrades, feminist gender cyborgs, hybrids, in-between body space time continuums, sub sequential resistant organisms, post-post human pirates, and all that are terraforming hi-fi down and dirty queer after qyeer after Kw-Ee-R renegade cyber punks.—— I invite / demand / request / question / challenge / wish / encourage / and /excite the people to cum and capture your hawt carnel fleshy generative amatory salacious force with me. We will work together to harness, save and re-distribute our sexual output in order to continue to exist in this multi-home-world Roberta Admantium energy in crisis.——We will figure the future out together.——Help me: Bottle orgasms. Preserve sonic moans. Decanter lust. Track and imprint tantric touch. Expand our cryostasis cunt-ries. Jack – into the fuckmention so we may maintain our crisis-mode.——We may not be able to save the world, but we have the juice to keep up the energy.——Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures.——Cum be with me and preserve our energy for the auto erotic now future.”
Liz Rosenfeld spent six weeks inhabiting the future in the midst of an energy crisis where she invited the public to come and harness their sexual energy with her. She was researching, testing and understanding how we can save our sexual desire in order to maintain energy for living into the future. She also investigated how humans can continue to accept and live peacefully in the current climacteric landscape along side the foxes, the only mammals left on earth that are able to procreate. She gave a presentation on her findings and kept a daily video diary of her experiences. Over the period of six weeks there she created a video alongside of her meetings with people in the space of DIRT. We are happy to be able to present the Video in Rijeka.
Liz’s work will be accompanied by the audio piece performed by Hacklander \ Hatam music duo, produced entirely with the Buchla 200e modular synthesizer at EMS, Stockholm in August 2015, and composed in Berlin especially for ‘Foxes’ and DIRT platform at Zoom Festival Rijeka.
