photon field sequences #01, 4:05 min, COLOR, STEREO, projection

A bridge area between natural and artificial experimental arrangements. Loosely floating photon fields have been compressed into a dense succession. The human eye may experience these fields as rooms. Illusions are being provoked by innovative imaging techniques that remind us via microcosm to the macrocosm.

ANTICIPATION 12-15, 2:00 min, b&w, mute, projection/loop

In days of yore was something to be seen. Esthesia had been used for differentiation and discovery. Perceiving images meant to give a hint or a meaning. Notwithstanding - on an archaic level those dots remind us still of the fires of initiation.

second life, 8.30 min, mp3, stereo
[photography by jurek weinberg]

now, in second life we experience an episode from the realm of shadows. down here, body, earth or spirit: the protagonist yields its days, searches, crosses, scrabbles conceptions and notions. His memories become light, he becomes dust, he is equal to an enormous glassy hollow body. weightlessly, floating.

spilur_vB, 1.48 min, stereo
[photography by jurek weinberg]

In a few seconds I will have forgotten everything. With the seagulls, between the close lanes. I was already suspecting that the fortress would fall. No matter whose nation's uniform I was born into. Now I find myself on the sheath. Under a closer point of view everything is spread out differently into the past. Hate, meanness, greediness, silence, love, megalomania - the groan of the city is rooted inside. It sounds like a convoy that is marching backwards. Infinity is a match between yes and no. Various paths are crossing in the vanishing point.
