Matrix Buffering


Ryan Bell, Kel Henderson, Herbert Leota 

15 July - 19 July 2014 
Opening Night Tuesday 15 July 2014, 5 - 7 PM

Matrix Buffering is both a musical and filmic depiction of the spectacle we know as the Internet and its increasingly stronger presence within our everyday lives. Through the musical storytelling medium of rap and spoken-word poetry, Kel Henderson, Ryan Bell and Herbert Leota navigate from the shallow depths to the deep web, whilst painting an online-inspired bricolage of the matrix. 

The simulacra we project within this data-based realm are spiritually extensions of ourselves - alter-egos.  And it is through rappingalter-egosthis buffering matrix is illuminated. 

We are the Internet.
