Tears of the material vulture
A solo commission for The Tapeworm. Tears of the Material Vulture is an experimental electro-acoustic composition. The work draws on previous collaborative work with Madame Chaos, the mid 90s public access television program using scratch video and audio techniques to re-digest broadcast media in a live format.
WORMING OUT OF SHIT
A digital commission for the Chisenhale Gallery, London, Worming Out of Shit is a presentation by artist Rachel Pimm in collaboration with archaeological sound/video artist Lori E Allen. The work explores Pimm’s research into the roles of soil strata and landfill in the composition of the earth’s surface and Allen’s material excavations and distortions of found audio. Worming out of Shit uses language and soundscape to hint at the instability that results from the aggregation of organic and man-made materials and our coexistence with naturally occurring architectures. This work forms the 3rd part of Rachel Pimm’s ongoing body of work entitled Matter, an investigation into materiality and environmental impact.
