9AM GAY NIHILISM by John Garrood
A4, 4 pages, colour printing, numbered edition of 25, 2021
In a free written style, 9AM GAY NIHILISM offers in stream and flow an earnest and vulnerable explorative text on queerness, nihilism and architecture. Encompassing form, the body, self-perception, sex, the ambivalence of meaning and diet quantum theory, it’s an unashamedly queer and half-baked surge. Originally uploaded in segments over fourteen days at 9am, as part of the 2021 Architecture Fringe open programme, the unabridged prose piece is printed here in its entirety: an irreverent romp of liquid nihilism. A portion of the profits from sales will be donated to the Scottish charity LGBT Health and Wellbeing. 9AM GAY NIHILISM is represented by Chez Etym., as part of its wider body of work exploring alternative and speculative perceptions of architectural place and time; see www.chezetym.com / @chezetym.
