In the nearby future, the Gulf stream may certainly collapse in itself as the percentage of salt water and sweet water in the oceans is changing dramatically. More and more glaciers are melting worldwide introducing an enormous amount of sweet water into the seas which causes a disbalance of the ocean water streams. There will be not only a rise of the sea levels which may flood coast by cities but also the “power engine” of the Gulf stream which is the “heating system” for Northern Europe is losing its force and energy. Therefore parts of the earth might become very cold and at the same point other parts to hot to live on. So the equilibrium of the earth’s temperature is going to be mad. Is there any escape? Maybe leaving mother earth to explore the deep space of our universe? There will be neither sounds nor noises, only freezing silence as there is no echo, no resonance in space.
AT MOre SPHERES tries to create an image of futuristic cold space and is meant to be screened in a loop on the surface of a building at night, video display, projection mapping or even cinema screen.

A psychedelic agent discovers her Third Eye: a rollicking romp of antics between two secret agents colleagues. Only seemingly a low profile appointment. Half backroom and hail-fellow-well-met, half acutely yet inconspicuously earnest, almost solemn. After all it is matter of nothing less than briefing latest instructions concerning an untrained new approach to the missions, where the agents have to quickly master esoteric techniques for improving their insight abilities. And just for boosting up the speed of assimilating them, why not commencing with a micro-dose of a synthesized psychedelic substance? Under the supervision of Agent A, Agent Wundersaar will undergo a wildcat training workout not only getting the knack of it but having a transcendental experience too, perhaps still a bit shallow one, nevertheless one capable of giving the taste and the grasp of something infinite and sacred behind reality. After all, it’s just a little miracle per se when micro-dosing becomes microGnosing!
Queen of the Luna Par(k)ing is a moving image produced by Sara Ferro and Chris Weil. The title itself is a combination of the element moon (from the Italian “luna” ) shining over a parking slot, where a girl is waiting for encountering someone, perhaps the king of the luna park. While acting in the gap of certainties like a lonely queen the moonshine splits its aura into the colours red/blue/yellow, interpreting the interstellar communication signals of Voyager 1 launched by the NASA in 1977. Exactly the year when the protagonist Wundersaar (Luna Queen) was born. Therefore the journey of the Voyager space probe can be seen as a metaphor for the expedition of every human being discovering the unknown in the deep space of life.

What if the gateway to Agartha would have been relocated to the very center of a billion busy alpha city metropole where fashion and financial districts meet? Horripilation? Not at all. Perhaps when the Italian sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro envisioned his Solar Disc, an extraterrestrial intelligence was capable to align diverse terrestrial forces in order to bring them locating the magnum opus there where it actually is, concealing the very toran to that secret ruling world, in disguise among passer-bys quintessentially too blind for even just inquiring about the identity of the ruler of the Earth. Until a day, a female street performer declaims in the premises of the Big Disc the prologue by the French inquisitive mind of René Guénon to the narration about the King of the World. And the mechanism starts moving opening up the underground secrecy for everyman.
Hunting, a vicious merry go round, a carousel for savage adults against wildlife. Avoid the circular logic of thinking about hunting in a roundabout way. Hunting must be stopped now, discursive roundabouts about the possibility of regulating it are circumlocutory escape routes!
In this video you hear ouzels singing in a cellar, deprived from sunlight, exploited and commofied, sold as call birds. Ouzels are highly seeked for their wondrous vocalization. In turn, as in a death carousel, they are then used for attracting other birds that will be killed by legalized exterminators, otherwise called hunters.

Paleo is a video clip shoot at the famous homonymous music festival in the French canton Vaud in Switzerland where many hippy techno-pagans gather every summer since from 1977. The editing style is a tribute to the reworking of the psychedelic theories and to the new age dissemination within the rave culture in early 90’s from the perspective of a late second decade of the new millennium. In the footage, anyway, the ritual ingestion is symbolically replaced by a liberating dancing through a powerful fast montage which epitomizes the frenzy of the intoxication achieved through psychedelic plants. A revival of a revival of a revival.
Vespertilio Spillover is a moving images materializing from a woodcut depicting cat-bats in a rare book written by the German scientist Athanasius Kircher (*1602 / +1680) illustrating China in comparison with the actual context of the Covid-19 insurgence, including the spillover infection phenomenon and its potential causes.
THIS VIDEO IS DEDICATED TO ALL VICTIMS – R.I.P.
Athanasius Kircher, a German Jesuit polymath who lived in Rome, wrote in 1658 “Scrutinum Pestis physico-medicum” on the bubonic plague also known as the legionnaire’s disease. This was carried by German soldateska in the Italian peninsula, and even if his thesis about the spontaneous generation of living animals from non-living matter was wrong, he was arguably the first to conduct microscopic observations on tissues and blood of the sick, concluding the disease was caused by micro-organisms. Thereon, he proposed the use of face-masks to prevent the inhalation of infectious agents.
One of his major fields of interest was sinology: without ever visiting China he left indeed a telling account of the country’s cultural landscapes.
350 years later, with the outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 infection, Athanasius would have seen a different China. But the subject of the new Coronavirus pandemic remains the same: virus hosting animals. Now, we can only hope that one day the virus returns to its original host.
Unlike than reported on Wikipedia – where Kircher’s discovery is not quoted, perhaps considered too much a fantasy creation – it was very much him who firstly accounted a new superspreader within his encyclopedic work “China monumentis”, naming a species of Chineses bats by genus name, Vespertiliones, later on in the taxonomic order categorized as „Vespertilio sinensis“. «Catti Volantes nil aliud sunt quàm praegrandes Vespertiliones». So he swore to have seen in China a tremendous amount of the exotic specimen „Catti volantes“ – afterward nothing else than a species of bats.
It is hazardous to believe that traditions always fit in a modern world, where development isn’t automatically advancement.
Kircher already then wrote about „pueri serpentìvori“, snake eating children among mountains. Today’s ongoing urbanization, environmental pollution of fragile ecosystems, and destruction of natural habitats may be only a few of the reasons for the actual pandemic. The consumption of bushmeat and exotic venison and therefore the request at the wet market is even rising and trading with wildlife animals could have been an important trigger point. Athanasius would have been also very fascinated by the infected New York Tiger.
But, despite recommending for healing from snake bites powder from “snakestones”, „Lapide serpentorum“, an antique name for fossils because of their resemblance, he would have been surprised by snakes on postmodern menus. It is not just about a conspiracy in a laboratory but more about behaviors.
One-time physicians Li Shizhen and Sun Simiao already insisted centuries ago that the meat of pangolins can cause serious health issues. Not only social distancing but also a change in these attitudes are necessary. Because Covid-19 may not only cause an illness to multiple organs following a lonely death, the virus questions also it‘s treatment methods. Besides isolation and quarantine allopathic medicine nearly failed to provide any kind of efficient therapy. Therefore the calls are open for the next super weapon – the vaccine, which bears high risks scenarios. But in the end, will the medication even cure the wounds of our injured society slave of cultural oblivion, manipulated by market logic and led by trivial common sense or only its‘ symptoms?
TEMPORALLY tells the story of an Italian thunderstorm through the eyes of a Japanese painter. The lightning itself fusions with its environment and creates a hypnotic point of view. The sound in the video was recorded on the occasion of the exceptionally high water alert in Venice, Italy. The alarm is composed of two parts. The first was the sirene in use under bombardments during WW2, whereas the second is designed by the University of Venice and should be heard during all the sleep phases, yet not causing any panic. The images themselves were shot during multiple thunderstorms in the mountains between Lake Lugano and Lake Como. So, an interplay of salt and sweet water. Furthermore, the title TEMPORALLY is a combination of the Italian word for storm “temporale”, and the word for atmospheric weather “tempo” which in English means rhythm and rally, thus a race of lightning, in the end, following in a recover.

The world is an enduring war theatre. Perhaps because it’s a men’s world? When cast in such a set women try to play out all their means, even performing a sad joy division or bowing down like a poor little thing. This in spite of being a fierce partisan or a tactical guerrilla expert.
The world is either a repeating making up of the same actions, as in the movements necessary for the make-up moment, every single day. Persisting like a waterproof mascara – but will it alike prove itself bulletproof too? I guess no, a mascara can only be more or less dramatic.
Like in a recrudescing war against more natural habits, occurring at large in the world theatre.
WhimSeaCall or a whimsical call from the sea, a rinvigourating allegorical swim in the alchemical archetype of the Red Sea otherwise hinting at the blackest dead sea of the unconscious performed on a black sun shore of an Italian coastline with harbour landscape in the background reminding the relation of the psyche to its environment. On that liminality the mare magnum is the canopy of the secreto secretorum once revealed to the great Alexander Magnum and tonight to a woman.
It’s often a sense of shakiness which emerges in seeking affordable rent. Furthermore, leasing a real estate in the time of Covid it’s an enough though enterprise due to the different restrictions in moving freely and without any fear even visiting the venue, still not to mention the angst before the future that a change in life like a relocation involves so that everything starts spinning around. Such a pretty much postmodern sensation should have had Hazel in the Synecdoche, New York by Charlie Kaufman when she rents a burning house, which becomes quite her home yet with this persisting sense of precarity still not precluding to keep going.
The experience is now translocated in another city, Turin, which is presently marked by phenomena of price dumping in the housing market perpetrated by big financial speculators. This evil strategy, on the one hand, condemns the city to decadence and obsolescence, on the other hand, it has the effect to be a good opportunity to rent or buy a house for a convenient price. It still remains a burning house in a burning city, but it, however, becomes home to someone.
