Modes of Existence

So you cannot sleep… And yes, it is an awful moment, going back and forth while trying to set the coordinates for your life. The good news is that this condition is a fine starting point for getting closer to what you want to be. Change your life.

“Modes of existence, confrontation of this modes and their relationton to an outside on which both the world and the ego depend.”

“It’s not a signal that shows that the ego is in danger. It is a signal that the subject is at the verge of emerging.aif”

You Hit Me

As a friend said lately: “la unica cosa que nos salva en estos momentos es la proactividad” … and as i still have some problems with this modern talking … I let Bruce do it for me. He is far better with that than I am … I mean: at least he is chinese having a good background on all this Konfuzius stuff …

(this is not from Konfuzius, of course, but from Gilles Deleuze. but there may be a kind of connection…)

Distant voices from within

Yes, there is a crisis: and it is not only about the economy. Doing the right thing. But what? All this voices in your body, trying to find a way out: to be heard. Who are you? What do you want? Listen carefully. This is a chance. You are more than one. And yes: you have a choice …

Fragmented images, blurred moments from a distant memory woven together in a worried premonition of what is going to happen.
Or has it already happened?

What about you

This is a crucial moment … now … so better be sure to be clean … with your girlfriend … and your mother … able to face what is going on … so that everything is good … now!

Come Up Girl

I had the flew during the last week; I used the time I had to rest for thinking some things over and making a new patch for processing the videos based on their sound. It is now the audio [buffer~] object that drives the images. This is great. You can do all sorts of time & pitch manipulations for the sound and still maintaining the relation for the timing of the images. Big fun I have with these …

This one is quite simple, to find out in what direction all of this is heading … But I am going to add the illuminating & beautiful words in the next versions … to not forget about the context about who you are and why is all that as it is …

Boy, oh Boy II

The beats do not follow an easy pattern, but provide an atmosphere adequate for the visuals: the cold, the naked, the dark, the suspension. And then see these uncertain, fragile movements of the boys body connecting his own coordinates, again and again.

[edit: remixII, with nicer trails and after I found out that there is a quicktime compression x264 that gives far better results than the apples onboard codec]

About being a better one.

One is constantly imaging being another, better version of oneself. Always reviewing the actual and the possible. All these voices, sounds and images in the head.

Who is the one standing in the way, blocking the view? Who doesn’t want to let go? Where does the real self end  and where is the imagined you beginning? Oh. Not easy to say. Surfaces and territories and something underneath. Sometimes there is a little light shining through, but mostly utter darkness.

And then there is always the bigger idea. You have to believe.

So better be sharp. And have your hair cut from time to time.

And remember:

“The unconsciouness always undermines your rational perceptions and rational choices.”
