The Will to Synchronize is a collaborative arrangement in three acts—objects made from vocal recordings, choreographed performance, and installation—that query the nexus, control, and evolution of relationships as they move into the state-regulated bubble of online space. As socialization becomes an increasingly mechanical meditation, The Will to Synchronize works to materialize how we store memory: inside the installation, performers and viewers interact with objects that have been rendered from sound in a recursive process of cleaning, tending, and preservation. As the sound recordings that have been transformed into object(ified) data are continually processed over the course of the exhibition, The Will to Synchronize points to the revolutionary power of different ways in which we interpret and translate in order to connect when daily social interaction migrate online.
