about

lapsed is invested in deconstructing gender. It focuses on the voice as a catalyst for this deconstruction, exploring inherent genderless qualities of the voice. It focuses on the dichotomy of natural and artificial materials, exploring the ways in which we create social constructs and the assumptions they espouse. It uses ideas of natural versus artificial to explore a radical queering of our perception of our surroundings, and by extension a queering of our understanding and expectations of gender. lapsed focuses on experientially rich accessibility, embracing the subjective nature of our aesthetic experiences and eschewing dominant modes of listening, expectation, and categorization.

breaking slowly broken
falling breaths
wildness in them
moss tearing folding
lapsed
breathing concrete
stunned in bright light
thrown distant empty
everything all the time
crashing and stunned
to actual use

discount it
its going
there
only maybe time
comes through
the waves
ever going
your new
