“Hope locates itself in the premises that we don't know what will happen and that in the spaciousness of uncertainty is room to act”

— Rebecca Solnit, Hope in the Dark

Tracing Latencies radically (re)imagines the conditional ways we relate to our increasingly digitized urban environments and each other. It traces and unfolds the cloaked systems, illegible structures and dislocated anxieties that constitute the constructed environment and crowds of algorithms that surround and engulf us. Entangling a mixed array of multivarious processes and voices across the tactile and digital realms, the audience is invited to walk/click through, pause and embrace the peripheral and the unexpected as central to the future of urban cultural transformation.

Presented at a trepidatious time, artmaking and the poetic role of creative play in the everyday are celebrated as sites of learning, resistance and hope in transitional times of precarious flux.
