Ep. 5 of the Day of the Triffids: the continuum of memory as it replays and breaks down. The layers, washed away, looping life as a lost material. The artwork as a record of deletion.

About

London, a city drained, whose familiar appearance belies its inhumanity; an infrastructure still, but on a long, slow course of decay; a dead machine; a filter; no longer the expression of its residents, but deleterious to their lives; a shell gone parasitic; a host turned hostile. And as it does, we pursue safety, not freedom; we seek protection against ourselves; and we sell out our future for an extra day of shelter.

'I wandered across to the window and looked out. Quite consciously I began saying goodbye to it all. The sun was low. Towers, spires, and facades of Portland stone were white or pink against the dimming sky… But now, at a distance, it could still masquerade as a living city... It must be, I thought, one of the race's most persistent and comforting hallucinations to trust that 'it can't happen here'- that one's own little time and place is beyond cataclysms. And now it was happening here. Unless there should be some miracle, I was looking on the beginning of the end of London.'

Katya Lewis, Jane Bustin, Josh Berry and Brice Dellsperger star in this latest installment of the exhibition-adaptation of the novel: the Day of the Triffids.
