Collider: Volatile correspondences

“Under experimental conditions, colliders set quantum particles on collision courses with one another to generate strange matter, anti-matter. Under planetary conditions we set human particles on collision courses that generate accidental matter, violent matter, discursive matter, political matter, ethical matter, matter of great weight and matter of no consequence. Oksana’s investigations look into pivotal, sited historical moments. Yet even as we recoil from their momentous consequences, are we focusing on the right conflict? The right scale? The right dimension? Volatile correspondences demand something of us as interpreters of our times…”
