Project title: circuit

Text “…commodius vicus of recirculation…” taken from James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake.

A man relives the whole recurrent pattern of history in a dream. Archaic and sometimes nonsensical language hovers between poetry and politics, relevance and irrelevance, seriousness and humour.

circuit is a positive feedback loop, a vicious circle: a revolution, a tap flows, a toilet flushes, clouds roll by.
