Distress Signals

Go for the quiet and the empty signs. Photographers mix with visitors trying to capture abstract structures.Framed by viewfinders, geometric arrangements shift gently as the flat sea moves in. Burnt grey sky turns black at the edges. Atmosphere of aggressive protection. It always seems like an appropriate place for things to end.

Gunshot girls lining up for the live human target. Freak in the alley. Shield up and microphone squall. Go home. No head shot.

The tower is the main gravitation point. Standing next to a circle of antennae, it looks like a radio outpost. Day and night the tower silently broadcasts. Directives forgotten, the pre-recorded cycle runs through its loop, transmitting until the fuel runs out.

Scenario. Project a film onto a white wall.

A man could climb to the tower’s peak and preach to the people below. They would say he was shouting about the rising seas and the end of the world. Unreachable amid the wirework.
