PHOTONS BE FREE (panoply performance lab) was originally cheap propaganda for the Hologram Liberation Front written by The Doctor (Joe). PPL’s 2012 piece attempts to provide a crucial platform for the voices of photon, electrons, and other enslaved particles (dear ones), as they shuffle together for warmth, scream their despair into ears too large and crude to understand, and riot across the spectrum in a haze of elementary self-organization.
