Codification (performance)

project CONTINUUM 2001

FROM SOMETIME I HAVE BEEN AND AM GENERALLY ENGAGED IN PERFORMANCE.
A CAMERA APPEASES MY STATICS, PASSIVITY – I LIKE TO CHANGE PARTS WITH IT.
A PERFECT WEAPON?
A PERFECT FRIEND – SOMETIMES IT'S MY ENEMY

THE PERFORMANCE – LOOKS FOR A PLACE FOR ITSELF, IT COMES INTO BEING AT THE LEAST AWAITED MOMENT, IN THE CROWD AND IN ISOLATION, IT IS A REACTION, AN INTELLECTUAL CONTEST, IT KNOWS ONLY HERE AND NOW, IT IS A CONTACT WITH YOURSELF AND WITH THE AUDIENCE, PERCEPTION, REACTION, OVER-ELABORATION, STOP, FOCUS, MANIPULATION, LIFE CUTTING.

Overlapping and stratification of meanings, makes a start of creating a new space of an expression.
In further reflection that overlapping is translocating our perception, it knocks out and shifts in another space.
That's why I'm stopping the moment, I'm stopping the natural way, it is an interception, making things slower.
I am thinking, loading, multiplying contexts.
Occurrence – I'm rolling according to the brand new economy.
I'm playing with reality with reference to conventions and rules related with it.
From reality I'm cutting off a fragment, it's a prefabricated element, I'm shaping it, multiplying, coding.
I'm using the already created one, taking advantage of it.
I'm connecting myself to the imagined system.
Imagination.
Possibly, I'm mocking... Over-elaboration until the exhaustion.

NO ADMITTANCE

system
the web knows the desires
the ability of having
everything what it needs
the adaptation to our life
being a thousand of stories
only if it wants to
locked in a system
settled rules
general consent
closed reality deformed
seductive image
silent image
overlapping of languages
overlapping of reports
transmission devoid of slits
whirl of the digital ravel of signs
the absorption of everything
the disappearance of everything in the system of codes
the information runs through a hundred of links
transmission straight to mind
loosing the stability
relativity of time
space
truth
the appearance of total accessibility
you can be everywhere
you can be anybody
everyone wants to be like the other one
re-becoming the one you are
instructed generation
instruction within an instruction
permanent regress of consciousness
weariness in strange visions
anonymous mass of a glass surface
perceptivity of apparent sights
system within a system
code within a code
multiplying codes
access denied
coded transmission
infiltration
fragmentation of a flow
thousands of codes
locking a thousand of worlds
a faulty transmission from the inaccessible territories
code
system of signals
disturbed transmission
impermeable
air-tightness
impossibility
absorbing everything
you can have anything
digital two-dimension
unrecognizable scraps
light
movement
voice
total seizure
you are only apparently in it
it lives apart from you
it has its own story
