Syx-Myx with Ilana Lucas and Ramon Knight; Pollution in the City

artist talk

Why is the city synonymous with pollution? Not just Kingston but all cities? Pollution is described as "the introduction of contaminants into the natural environment that causes adverse change" (.info), but what does it mean to contaminate? What is a "natural" environment, and what creates adverse change?

It's not just in cities we find opposing energies and interests but being in the midst of calamity has a unique effect on people. It takes two for tension and in concentration there is bound to be tugging.

What was supposed to be a sequel to Magic Mountain turned into Syx-Myx, a musical metropolitan soundscape featuring Ilana Lucas and Ramon Knight. In its premiere episode, Ilana recalls her experience with pollution in New York and Ramon photographs pollution in Kingston.
