How do we keep existing amidst peril? We are beset by efficiency focused machinery ill prepared for any failure. During a high-tech siege it is better to prolong the process and let a new language emerge. 
Pump works slowly, it's inherently unproductive, and exudes a dragging feeling. Its sluggishness bends time and screens us from a linear normative experience. It’s a performative act allowing for an examination of lossiness and liminality of feedback networks. The unknown oozes from remnants of each cycle. It follows a logic all its own by injecting meaning into recognisable processes of suction and dropping. 
Technology has never been innately malicious, but we made it so by forcing it into shapes familiar to us and refusing any weirdness. To truly befriend it, we must speak with genuine empathy towards it. At the brink of this self-wrought collapse this pumping machine could be the last thing clemently screening us from peril.
