1998

Atomic

21–28 March 1998 / Casco HQ

WHAT ARE YOUR TOP TEN FAVORITE SONGS OF ALL TIME? 

WHAT ARE THE SECRETS THAT YOU HAVE NEVER TOLD TO ANY OTHER HUMAN BEING? 

BLAST THEORY WANT TO KNOW. AND IN RETURN THEY WILL TELL YOU THEIR OWN ANSWERS. 

The installation Atomic – part chat show and part psychological research  – brings artists and public face to face. In this era of questionnaires and market research, can our identity be deduced from what we buy or answer? During a seven-day exchange, Blast Theory develops a performance in which DJ Shadow and DJ Pulp will meet our most intimate selves: confrontational, difficult, and at times uncomfortable and illusive. 

Blast Theory stages live events at theaters, clubs, exhibition spaces and public space. Since 1991, Blast Theory has been opposing a mediatised world in which popular culture reigns, using video and computers to pose questions about the ideologies present in the information that surrounds us. 

Blast Theory is Matt Adams, Jamie Iddon, Ju Row Farr and Nicholas Tandavanitj.
