post doom romance is seah and mykel boyd


All of seah’s work stems from a sensorial sensitivity from decades long movement research in Butoh, Body Weather Laboratory, Noguchi Taiso, and Somatic Movement, as well as extended periods of time spent in remote wilderness areas. These movement practices embody Deleuze and Guattari’s nomadology, the shifting terrain of the psyche-a beingness that is fluid, always in transition, “becoming”. This nomadic subjectivity is necessary for becoming-imperceptible, a state which seah describes as a de-centering of recognizable “humanness” that allows for somatic, phenomenological experiences of what it means to be posthuman. In 2022, seah released ‘conduits of the hydrosphere”, a cd/book that is a physical manifestation of the investigations into what it is to be a “water body” interacting with other water bodies. In 2023, ‘clouds & spectres” was released, focusing on the experience of the water body shifting into cloud body, a meditation on death and release. seah gives lectures on her art practice, Posthumanism and Nomadic Theory, as well as movement/technology workshops at universities, colleges, conferences, festivals, and culture centers throughout the world. Most recently seah presented “body / bodily resonance” as a workshop while also showing and talking about work from “conduits of the hydrosphere” at Harvard University’s Department of Music.


mykel boyd

Mykel makes sound recordings, conceptual artworks, photos, installations and films. By experimenting with aleatoric processes, Boyd creates work in which a fascination with the clarity of content and an uncompromising attitude towards conceptual and minimal art can be found. These meticulously planned works resound and resonate with images culled from the fantastical realm of imagination. With a subtle minimalistic approach, he formalizes the coincidental and emphasizes the conscious process of composition that is behind the seemingly random works. The thought processes, which are supposedly private,highly subjective and unfiltered in their references to dream worlds, are frequently revealed as assemblages. Combining unrelated aspects lead to surprising analogies. His works do not reference recognizable forms. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. Boyd is the founder and curator of the somnimage audio arts label. Over the past 25 years he has released recordings by sound artists from around the world, as well as promoting live events, performing and exhibiting photography.
