Page 29 and Page 44 are part of an iterative text-sound project Hopkins began in 2018. In this ongoing project, text generation software is used to repeatedly alter a page of text. Each alteration is collated in an expanding document that he uses to inform recordings and performances. The pages were read, but not a great deal was said.
Flakes 1 and Flakes 2 are collages made from test signals and found audio fragments from Australian television between 1974 – 1979. Anticipating the broadcast, but nothing begins.
Recorded and assembled in 2021 on Gadigal and Wangal land.
