A reflection on the notion of identity and post-humanity. A vision of an anticipatory fictional documentary that questions the relationship between memory and entropy.
A revisit of NASA archive images to reflect on the collective unconscious and the fear of disappearance. These archives are the materials of a past memory and of a memory to come. Intervention work on the document to build the feeling of a relic of the future. A collision between the ghosts of images and the spectrum of reality. A look at the latent threat of the absolute against the fascination of the Eternal Man … The God-Man. The ideal against air and death. A new quest for identity between the concrete abstraction of the existing world and the truth of existence. Metaphysics of critical death announced against the metaphysics of philosophical and moral rebirth.
