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.


Appendage B – TRT 4:09 mins.

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.

This video contains a lot of information as well as references to things that people may not necessarily know about. I had to look up a few of the references, and the only one I knew of was the reference to Kafka’s “Metamorphosis”. I think that most of the time the images and audio go well together, but over all, I just couldn’t decipher the complex jargon spoken throughout.

This was a very interesting video to say the least. There was a lot of information to take in and to be honest I couldn’t really follow much of it. I’m sure there is a deep underlying meaning behind this video, but I just couldn’t follow it.
