My first exposure to Holly Herndon’s work was the video for “Home” in 2014. I had instant chills absorbing the audio and video, I played the song obsessively for a solid month. Her album “Platform” was released a year later and I listened to it with equal devotion. When I first listened to “Unequal,” I was reminded of the time I randomly wandered into a Chelsea gallery and was introduced to the work of artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot. The entirety of the gallery space was dedicated to porcelain bowls floating on water in wading pools. The bowls would randomly float toward one another, creating beautiful tones with their delicate collisions. This event was occurring simultaneously in the room, it was like church to me. A celebration of floral tones that randomly touch and move apart on the skin, with notes of gardenia, honeysuckle, lilac, lily, jonquil, and violet. The shape of our future, to be unafraid, to break away.
