Blurring the lines between fiction and reality, Awaiting Oblivion... follows the story of AO, an anonymous street artist who has tasked Tim and Jeffrey with the creation of a performance as a way to share AO’s “temporary solutions” for existing within our collapsing empire. Inspired by creative processes developed by the 60’s Fluxus art movement, each “temporary solution” is a visual/textual poem contained in a flux kit (a cigar box collaged with stenciled imagery and type written letters). We follow Tim, Jeffrey, and AO in a flurry of street art, secret messages, and performance scores in a poetic, radical fight for survival. 

Collaborators: Skylar Tatro, Salo, Alice Gosti, Estee Clifford, Alyza DelPan-Monley, Lauren Hester, Tristan Roberson
