Description

Remote Viewing: Five Hundred Tableaux by Maximilian Goldfarb is an excavation site of our lived future. As a work of fantastical nonfiction, it is a text to read in all directions, and a visual archive escaping traditional representation. Tableaux presents short passages which convey a virtual urbanism, interconnected antatomies, and the mechanics of everyday apparitions. The 500 scenes reveal an engagement with newly arising spatial conditions, as humans attempt to adjust to a landscape of their making.

Remote Viewing evolved from Goldfarb’s 2015 publication, Handbook for Human Machines (Pilot Editions), a visual research project and operating manual which considers bodies as evolving machines.

The book is accompanied by an audio cassette to be listened to while reading passages of the text. On the cassette is a 15-minute sound composition (repeated on both sides) entitled A Device To Lead Forward, textured with shortwave radio artifacts as elements in a constructed soundscape. The track is layered with voice transmissions conveying, in their many accents and radiophonic qualities, contact among far-away sources. Production of the cassette was enabled by a Media Arts grant from Wave Farm.
