)and_scape( on NEURAL
Interactive moving picture created in Flash by media artist Agricola de Cologne
inspired by poetic texts of Liubov Sirota, an Ukrainian Tchernobyl survivor.
The work is telling something about landscapes
imaginary landscapes, flourishing landscapes
landscapes of illusion, landscape of hope, landscape of innocence
landscapes of being home, landscapes of unscathed genetics
landscape of giving home to all beings of the Creation.
Are there any landscapes any longer, did not they dry out, blasted, shrinked to minimalism through the will for destruction, the bombs over Hiroshima, Chernobyl the completely mined enviroment which leaves no air to breath, the mountains of garbage collapsing……………..
who will remember all those little children
who will be born again and again
who will never get any chance to survive.
We will remember,
we will reconstruct forgotten landscapes
But will we succeed?
The work is developed according the principle of SAMAC
(Simultaneous Associative Media Art Composing) which describes Agricola’s individual way of experimental electronic writing: words, sound, images, animation, music and voice performance are developed simultaneously –depending on each other – in one long single process.
Voice and sound performance by Agricola de Cologne.
