Dust is everything but dust is hidden. We need to encourage dust. Dust is noise. Dust is darkness. Reza Negarestani explores dust through its central influence in the Middle East where dust is place and dust is time. Dust is surface and boundaries whilst also travelling across territories. It is carried on the lightest of wind and made by elements carried in the same way. Dust is always an assemblage in continuous flux marking territories. As noise it is the crackle on vinyl surface – try listening to Christian Marclay’s record without a sleeve – it is dirt in solder joints, it is interference between light transmission and receiver. The dirt of dust is in our media devices as written by Jussi Parrika. Dust moves nomadically.
