Zeitgeist (Spirit of the times)? episode # 13 and if we live? aesthetic and ritual action

It is a work in progress: reflection on time, its course, and the time we live in

It is an instrument of the mind, an anti-technical technique that allows you to act with a mythical connotation and enables a poetic act to arise

It is the awareness of matter as a fragmentary sphere, its distribution, discontinuity, a ritual of remuneration for the plague of the world of the spectacle; the materials used are sign splashes, parts of the sense, traces of thoughts, shadows of meaning

realizes the vision of mythical, cyclical time where the myth is supposed to stop the stream of time

it is practically work on emotions; it is a gesture, the certainty of creating poetry at a speed close to that of the human brain. ? video images are the result of editing fragments, frames and sounds used in the performance as stereotypical images of media communication, often linked with the language of the world spectacle, taken out of context and collected to create a kind of modern iconostasis.
