Hanging on the Hinge, the Jonbar Hinge

Reading (approximately 15 minutes).

Taking the phrase "Jonbar Hinge" as a point of departure, a phrase that describes the rather abrupt moment of when a choice are to be made between objects that lead to different future outcomes, I delivered a reading touching upon the subjects of speculation, ambivalence and desire. The text are loosely based on several fiction works such as the books The Legion of Time (1938) by Jack Williamsson, A Sound of Thunder (1952) by Ray Bradbury and the film Matrix (1999). I bring with me a metronome that creates a strict syntax as well as a conflict between voice and rhythm. The reading suggests scenes using possibilites and deadlocks deriving from the fragmented timescale in science fiction, as if something is in a hurry; like my narration trying to catch up with the rhythm of a metronome.
