Loud Luggage / Booming Baggage consists of amplified suitcases which burst, crackle, and explode with noise. Underlying much of GX Jupitter-Larsen’s work is a self-created lexicon of personalized units of measurement such as the polywave, the totimorphous, and the xylowave. Forget about metric conversion, this is GX conversion. The polywave is his own personal alternative to the inch. All nations and cultures direct their participants to conform to a master narrative, as if its story was the only one worth measuring. GX has his own story to recount, and that’s where the polywave and totimorphous come in. They are the inches he uses to measure his life. A casual observer’s literacy of GX’s lexicon is optional. The artist employs all misunderstandings as a useful calibration. Comparing a reinterpretation to the original intent gives the artist a deeper awareness of his own thought process. By this means, there is no passive audience, only collaborators.
The Loud Luggage performance is a sonic reference to the xylowave, which GX Jupitter-Larsen defines as the distance between nothing and something.
