Damascus as a neo art form.
A thirst for abstraction at a time when immediacy and simultaneity – culminating in the multiple strand captioning of TV news screens, or the instant feedback of Twitter, tyrannical demands, forcing aesthetic sensibilities to seek new ways of slowing down.
As they float through a plastic representation of time-space (blank as Richard Hell) we need a way to associate their blankness to action as it eases us to a pseudo-understanding of a mindless state we only observe.
Damascus as an end to mindwash religion, nowhere politics and bogus philosophy.
The first film is the visual film. A waltz through the night of city that transcends itself. Three principals enacting the dance to death of relationships, plurality and urban living. The visual element of the project flows through time and arches through experience that answers nobodies' questions. It is disorientating: both musically and formally. Experience is placed front and centre, whether that be disconnection or sexual release. Best invoked by the term Psychogeography/ Which was defined in 1955 by Guy Debord as "the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals."
