A performative presentation for and with HDR Theory Workshop peers in October 2015. This work was part of a panel discussion, developed with Melanie Oliver and Vincent Chan, on mediation and ghosts. I utilised the conference call software, and the ever changeable word doc. to develop a time-sensitive text. A highly provisional and speculative text was read from the working document on my screen, from the studio to my peers in the lecture theatre. I reflected on contradictions found in a previous work, the spectral capacity of the image, and how an image can be open to becoming. Photograph thanks to Leuli Eshraghi.
