Upon recognizing that The Plummet Machine (which is a pataphysical social apparatus) governs all relationships of authority and power in contemporary society, I set about conducting a series of aesthetic, theoretical, and rhetorical investigations concerning its structure and order. Presented as performances, photographs, videos, texts, and mixed media sculptures, these inquiries typically satirize, critique, or reiterate the workings of The Plummet Machine. While overthrowing The Plummet Machine is clearly impossible, the goal of this work is to subvert its control for the purpose of activating subjectivity.
Matthew C. Lange was born in Buffalo, NY on June 12, 1979. In the Spring of 2011, he received his MFA in Photography, Video and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts in New York. Investigations concerning the order and structure of The Plummet Machine have been conducted in and around New York, where Matthew C. Lange lives and works.
