Language that hits like a fist, cuts like a razor blade, or exhibits the gentle tenderness of a slow caress. We press our nose up to the glass for a good look at a society balancing on the brink of (self-) destruction. The ancient myth of Icarus warns against excess. Our global culture has long since cracked the walls of moderation and melted them like wax. Overpopulation and isolation walk side by side, not speaking to each other.
Hydrogen bombs and poverty
Digital dates, pornography
And endless oil ecstasy …
Artificial intelligence takes aim at intimacy, but there is no replacement for a real heart beat. Images of the underbelly of our society interwoven with intricate rhythms and sweeping soundscapes. Poetic language and music spar; each luring the other into unknown territory.
