Solar Pessimist

At 5pm today artist John Lawrence, in collaboration with actor Peter Hugo Daly and Berlin-based musician Tim Eve, present the 'Solar Pessimist'. A combination of performed spoken-word monologue with a cyclical, rhythmic soundscape.

Shifting between speculative ‘pub chat’ and philosophical diatribe, our guiding voice becomes distracted, his thoughts distorted through the joint lenses of conspiracy theory, new-agism and that of the self-righteous contemporary consumer.

Within this meandering thought-process are propositions about what best to be doing at the end of the world, how zero-gravity pornography will affect us all and… if the sun is a conscious being… what happens when he starts talking back?
