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 six names have been notated in presumed accordance with individual astrological sign. 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.
