THE LOOP

Three pills, a glass of water.
Which day is it today? 


Repetition without insight or excitement creates routine, takes the life out of living, and cannot cause us pain. 

What happens if you perceive the same magic effect over and over again? In this piece Ruudu Ulas and Luis Carr playfully explore the numbing effect of routine and the inevitable decay of wonder. The motifs of perpetual attempt and constant failure find their equivalent in the repetitive structure of the loop.

Performed and recorded at the Royal College of Art in London in 2020.
