Longshore drift, early Detroit techno and other processes of erosion is a performative lecture about memory, chance and sequence. An initial attempt to understand the moon’s effect on tidal flow gives way to an account of beachcombing collections of deposited artefacts along a coastline. A series of washed up 35mm slides provides the order for a narrative that drifts together 1960’s tourist snaps with a history of Detroit techno, and NASA’s drug experiments on spiders. The lecture images and discussion is altered each time this talk is performed.
