Someone once told me there were no answers, just things that allow you to ask more precise questions. Back then, I was studying Philosophy, so it sort of made sense. Actually, I say that it sort of made sense, what... Continue reading

Most of the time we don't really think about moving. We just do it, and the motor functions and muscles do the rest for us out of habit. It's automatism at its finest, muscle memory that works faster than thought.... Continue reading

Sinking into the bath, feeling the water rise around you. Diving into the pool, breaking the surface and passing into another world. One that's all around us, a kind of noticeable density that you can feel against the skin. Light... Continue reading

Have you ever missed a phone call? Had the icon stare at you accusingly? It's even worse if it comes from an Unknown or Witheld number, because there's a chance it was important. We've all been there, haven't we? Maybe... Continue reading

“WHAT IS ENGLAND REBORN?: England Reborn is an idea – it is an ethos and a dream given form. In an age of dissolution and chaos, in the degradation of moral authority, its creators sought inspiration from the bedrock on... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT] Clearance Has Its Privilege – without that I couldn't borrow what I needed for this, being as it's not strictly legal. Don't blame the folks who supplied it, I bullied them into it. [60 MINUTE PAUSE IN VOCALISATION]... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT] And just like that, the serpent raises its head. I knew it would, just not entirely how. Someone's been leaving messages on the Ministry Feeds, even as far down as the 2012 archive! It's quite wonderful really, how... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT] I'm coming up for 42 years old, and I'm once again convinced the cycle - the gyre - is widening. I don't have much time before everything is needed to be in place. All the months of meetings... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT] The scar still itches on hot days, or when there's a change in the air pressure. Every single one of us is bound together now, each networked into BLAKE by virtue of the implant – at least if... Continue reading

“Welcome to the Museum Of Virulent Experience. You join us on the eve of a veritable renaissance, a tipping point in time. England is on the cusp of a new age, its rebirth and metamorphosis into a model vision of... Continue reading

Here begins a short series of posts on the structure and themes behind the VIRULENT EXPERIENCE production. Without the artists involved, we would be without an INDEX to allow you to explore. Without such creativity behind us, the work would... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT:] They shut down the Black Farm, or at least that's what they say. I have my doubts, but there we go. Hardly any warning, and I'm not sure why. They've broken up most of the old teams, relocated... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT:] I take no pleasure in being right. I really don't, I take no pleasure in their suicidal bliss, their rage and the sickening depressions. I could feel guilty, but there would be no point, no point at all.... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT:] We're online – everyone has been for six months, and so far there are no hitches. There's some minor rumbles of discontent about how the Sure Heart bandwidth plans are calculated, but that's not my problem. Blake seems... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT:] I still can't get used to this. I mean, they've migrated all the security protocols away from the MOD standard now that we're under the new Ministry Of Information. I even have a new office that's above ground,... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT:] I'm a hundred quid better off now. The look on their faces when I was right was priceless, still at least they paid up. When will people learn that you can't just skim top-layer data for your model... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT:] Adams and I were in Whitehall today with the rest of the team. I've never met the Home Secretary before, but they'd asked us to lay out what exactly Virulent Novelty means, to the politicos. I mean it... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT:] It's been a month since the INDEX went live, and Blake's holding up swimmingly. They've rebuilt the testing rig, to make it more ergonomic. Must admit, I'm pleased about that – wasn't exactly the most comfortable piece of... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT:] Four days to Christmas and the weather is foul. Not that I'm going to get outside, in between monitoring the feeds from the kids, and mining the deep-cultural structure of your Northern European Winter Festival. Seriously, whichever staff... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT:] Bonfire Night. No fireworks for me, except for the ones I see when I close my eyes. You couldn't hear them anyway, not down here in the guts of this place. I haven't been outside in a week.... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT:] Well, Campbell's gone. Took a dive from Blackfriars Bridge this morning, no note, nothing. Can't say I'm surprised. He's been increasingly twitchy the past couple of weeks – I tried to take it up with Dusty, but nothing... Continue reading

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is with great pleasure that we announce the beginning of rehearsals for the upcoming VIRULENT EXPERIENCE! We're working with a wonderful band of performers, in an amazing space which will perfectly embody the Museum of Virulent... Continue reading

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT:] I suppose it's running. That's what the techs say. It's a little unnerving – just talking to the air and knowing that everything's being recorded, but I suppose I'll forget after a while. I'm not looking forward to... Continue reading
