Head Gallery invites you to My Spinal Cord 
Traversed by the Axis of the Planet, an exhibition 
that "exists" as a stream of indeterminate white-code, 
punctuated by a series of contingent meaning-units 
(postulated artworks), moving through the 
directionless plenum and time-bends against 
which orbital space shores up. It accelerates 
in an abyssal "vertical" plunge, masked as an 
effort to trace the abstract lineaments of a 
post-solar gravitational vacuum. It's total 
illusory narrativizing or phantasmic 
integument-production as refusal to accept 
the coming meltdown, absolute material dissolution.  
The end of the mesh, networkscapes, Spirit, objects, 
Real. An ultimate context of no-context. The white-code 
speeds through deep space in a mock mission of alien 
contact as parody of the futile galactic transversality 
wish-work of uploaded and deep-stored consciousness. 
Like the white-code, emancipated from the gravitational 
slavery of the terrestrial, uploaded and catapulted 
consciousness as survival mechanism is left to spin in 
the vortex of its own unimaginative existence as solution 
to anything. A mixture of self-generated binary couplets, 
DNA string sequencing, ancient Latin, Koranic braille, 
cthulhic runes, pre-dessiac hieroglyph, and Zoroastrian 
symbols, the white-code and the meaning-units it pulls 
along are mathematics breaking down in the dissipative 
zoom of matter, "measured" by a better instrument than 
the metric regimes of biomass prejudice. 

The Axis of the Planet Traversed by the Inviolable 
Linearity of the Dissipative Drive of Matter and Energy.
