Legendary ex-Throbbing Gristle member Cosey Fanni Tutti has created an 18 minute piece called "Bioschismic" inspired by Boingboing contributor Xeni's recent cancer treatment. Here's what Cosey had to say:
"Bioschismic" is created solely from audio and photographic documentation of Xeni’s time spent receiving chemotherapy. The repetitive drip drip rhythm of the toxic chemicals measured in precise doses over a specific period of time provide the prospect of extending (life) time. Time is the dominant force yet the effects of the drugs change the experience of time to a space that is other worldly -- a different time zone -- a schism within and for life itself.
