BLAST FROM THE PAST – a three step film and sound rocket
These works explore our loss of memory and inability to get the big picture. And the humor and sometimes sadness of it all. It plays on the fact that humans have not been around that long compared to some other species and natural phenomena, the speed of forgetting and remaking of mistakes. How sweet memories can reoccur as only memories – long gone reality.
Part I – The cave
The cave is an experimental project that will evolve during installation and will be a symbolic setting for the challenges to face and overcome for mankind. Stalagmites and stalactites will turn the space into a cave and be the backdrop for a video-projection. Sounds will be added and elaborated on site. The stalagmites and stalactites will have a conversation and tell stories and jokes about the past and memories that comes up. Stories will be repeated as they keep forgetting what they have already told. It will be inhibited by two creatures since the cave appears fairly often in mythological iconography as the meeting-place for figures of deities.
