Losing is Ours

Based on Michael Salu’s 2023 book, Red Earth, Losing is Ours is a feature-length epic poem—a meandering meditative work, thinking about modern existence, as we relate or do not relate to the material compositions of our world. Taking the point of view of a low-frequency radio wave, we travel through materials, timezones and atmospheres as a quiet observer, folding time, considering humanity across history, both recorded and forgotten.
