Presque Rien: ainsi continue la nuit

2017
experimental / 11'34" / 16mm film transferred to 2K video

English title: Almost Nothing: so continues the night
Release date: May 2017

For us, a thought always presupposes a society, a culture and above all the consciousness of time. We are haunted by immortality, human notion par excellence. As if the world was here to fascinate us. And to disappoint us. The film travels around the bulb like the Earth around the Sun. Light makes the film visible. A fragile film, like our existence. In the orbit of the film tragedy and our reality, the image resists the cruelty of the experiment.

"Our eye is made of the same material as that which constitutes the Sun. It was shaped by the Sun, and that's why we see. Between the eye and the Sun the contact is constant, intimate."

"The gaze needs distance to perceive. Light is no longer there when we perceive it. So there is a sort of absolute distance."

"In an experiment, I destroy to achieve what I want to know. In an experiment, some images are nowhere, they do not yet exist. Some images are created in the very act of transformation, they fade away in front of our eyes."

Filmed in Korčula, Zagreb Observatory, Roza Kuća Studio.

Blue arpeggios

2012
experimental / 5'20" / BETA SP (PAL)


 

Blue arpeggios is a time work which avoids the structural narrative and can be grasped as a metaphor for consciousness, perception or as a reflection on the individual position in nature. The fixed gaze becomes an exploration for subjective world of perception, cognition and imagination.
The music composed by Francisco López evokes and strengths the inner landscape of associations.

"Sometimes the landscape is the subject; other times it shares the moment in balance with an action taking place within it; yet always its energy is present and felt for what it is – the natural raw material of the human psyche." – Bill Viola
