Awaiting Oblivion - Temporary Solutions for surviving the dystopian future we find ourselves within at present.

Blurring the lines between fiction and reality, Awaiting Oblivion... follows the story of AO, an anonymous street artist who has tasked Tim and Jeffrey with the creation of a performance as a way to share AO’s “temporary solutions” for existing within our collapsing empire. Inspired by creative processes developed by the 60’s Fluxus art movement, each “temporary solution” is a visual/textual poem contained in a flux kit (a cigar box collaged with stenciled imagery and type written letters). We follow Tim, Jeffrey, and AO in a flurry of street art, secret messages, and performance scores in a poetic, radical fight for survival.
