The mysterious Antikythera Mechanism, an astrolabe known as the first computer, was recovered in 82 fragments from a sunken shipwreck off the island of Antikythera around 1900. Although it is widely believed to have been constructed by a Greek astronomer around 100 BCE, this origin story has not been confirmed. No other such technologically complex artifact appeared anywhere in Europe until late 14th century.
In 2015 AD, BQF Theorists unearthed rare, previously unseen records and unheard sound clips claiming to detail the true origins of the mechanism as designed and constructed by a secret society in ancient Ifriqiyah as a device for time displacement.
We propose to install an exhibition-version of our ANTI-KY-THE/RA project, which is a sound and visual project that re-envisions the origins of the Antikythera Mechanism with a Black Quantum Futurist lens. The project was originally created in 2015 and includes a 4-song album, zine, and one-channel experimental video. The project has been exhibited digitally, but this will be the first physical installation of the project. As such we propose to expand the project with additional short films, maps, and other visual and sound images from our portfolio.
