No Substance was first shown in 2014 and its genesis came from Zul Mahmod’s observations of the hyper urban landscape, which he describes as resembling infrastructure devoid of a soul. No Substance is an inquiry into the role of human inhabitants in a big city. Without them, cities will just be glass towers which ring hollow, metaphorically speaking. In No Substance however, that monotonous and toneless tinkering and clinking is literally and amplifies the emptiness of the glass vessels.
Whereas the installation uses the same type of materials as before, that is, solenoids, laboratory grade glass vessels and apparatus, microcontroller, midi player, Zul has now made the five new, heftier individual works, each with its own operating system and customised case.
