Tannon Reckling uses their creative practice to write, curate, and construct transdisciplinary formal work for an esoteric queer audience to develop later kinship on the internet. Recent work includes digital collages, video work ft. an older gay relative, and 3D software explorations of semiotics and materialisms located in viral, queer, metaphorical ontologies.
Reckling is currently thinking about: queer death drives, rendering systems, slime, pink capital, genetics & agriculture, moiré, dyslexia, and enby farmer raves in near future agrarian-scapes, among other things in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic which will soon enter the realm of other historical health care emergencies before it: affecting lower classes and othered bodies. Who did you help during this ongoing pandemic besides yourself? Who did you ignore? How did you do it? Why did it turn out this way?
