COLD METAL theory - Cargo, London - 29th January 2004


On the 29th January 2004 the authors were invited by For Your Pleasure to produce a video and slide interpretation of COLD METAL theory for exhibition at their Alive! night at Cargo, London.

Taking the title story as source material, the video and slide projections cut-up the cut-up, fragmenting the fragment even further, pushing the narrative to isolated extremes. The resulting images shift between the original narrative and explicit statements, appearing as an Orwellian billboard that demands answers of those who care to read it.

A limited edition (200) A3 folded bookwork was also produced for the event and given out on the door as patrons entered the club.

As part of the publicity for this event, XFM Radio ran a competition to win a copy of COLD METAL theory and tickets to Alive!
