Still aus Meshes of the Afternoon, 1943. Mit Genehmigung von Re:Voir I started out by thinking in terms of a subjective camera, one that would show only what I could see by myself without the aid of mirrors and which would move through the house as if it were a pair of eyes, pausing with […]

00:21:00

Void like any other perfection, is unstable. So unstable that with a little luck it can give birth to something quite substantial – the universe, star, planet or even conscious mind. Void will eventually use it as a tool to find out about its own existence. SPACE NOTHING MORE video is a mix of dance, […]

It is close to the anarchic essence of life, neither one thing nor the other. I was in a midway position, in the middle of a period of time. A bit confused, but I was certain of leaving […]
