‘Curated by Paul Purgas for Restless Times: a night of sound and visuals inspired by the Vorticist literary magazine Blast. The Vorticists created a radical new language with which to express the excitement and ravages of the modern machine age. This programme adopts the spirit of Blast as a framework for examining the conflicted relationship between art, technology and humanity, exploring the legacy of these ideas within visual art and experimental sonic practice.’
