Frakture, 2010

The year 1984 has passed, but George Orwell’s vision of a society controlled through surveillance, censorship, infringement of individual liberties, and violence in the name of security still resonates today. Through contemporary media clips and sound art, Frakture explores Orwell’s 1949 predictions as they increase in accuracy with each new decade.

Margaret Noble created and presented Frakture as a solo sound performance and recording in 2010. Frakture now lives as a limited edition vinyl record and art book.
