Ouroboros - manifests the latent energy contained within an album sleeve found at a Richmond, Virginia thrift store.
Originating in Hialeah, Florida, the album cover of Blowfly’s “Zodiac Blowfly” depicts a zodiac chart over which 6 names have been notated in presumed accordance with individual astrological sign. Amongst images of various sexual positions, evidence of the album having once been used as an impromptu dartboard is also apparent.
By treating said album sleeve as artifact, “Ouroboros” isolates and amplifies the traces left from the ritualistic transcription that took place decades prior, re-performing said act in a perpetual loop during the course of its exhibition.
