Zoë Strachan/Static Flux

Radiophrenia 2017

Static Flux

Static Flux is a radio and performance collaboration with writer Zoë Strachan, which was initially created as a live studio broadcast for Radiophrenia in 2017.

Static Flux focuses on out-of-time memory states, and how they can be both static and in flux. We are interested in exploring narrative Zoë and Nicholaand time through chance encounters with remnants, fragments and the ephemera of past lives. Metaphors for our endeavour include the remnants found in second-hand bags and the pockets of clothing, or in notes scribbled on the back of black and white photographs. There is a melancholy air to these things, but as with any kind of haunting, also the potential for fear, and for deeper connections with our own sense of mortality.
