New Material in the Reading of the World (2011, 5’20”)
The video announces the emergence of Oubliism, a concept that consists of the exploration of new possibilities to be found in the chaos of the universe. In ‘New Materials in the Reading of the World’, spoken word and other sounds merge with imagery, on the basis of their divergence. The result is an atonal and poetic composition, with created and found audio visual materials. Oubliism proposes a rethink of the current system which is bound by physical laws and humane concerns. This movement distances itself from reality and aspires to new cosmic and revolutionary ideals.
