Good News, Comrades!

Against the backdrop of cosmic history, everything crumbles to dust anyway. An unusual view in the political West of the fleeting coincidence of our own existence. This amalgam of theoretical and aesthetic approaches-at least if it should come loose one day-should not be swallowed up. An orc of industrialisation gapes before us. Perato-optionality can be so cruel. Besides itself, capitalism also naturalises gender stereotypes and their diabolical constraints. The radical self-criticism of bourgeois society has long since run aground. What remains is the hope for an intellectual first-pass effect, which ends after the complete metabolisation of the film to question one's own position as a viewer.



Time Perspective

Time perspective theory is the idea that our perception of time influences our emotions, perceptions and actions. Time perspective models break down time into chronological categories, such as: Past. Present. Future.



Green Thoughts

Somewhere in the world there is a remote island. The sea. Lush hills. The impenetrable forest. The constantly changing weather. In a lodge by the sea, a Chinese writer immersing herself in reading and writing encounters a Japanese girl who is in a melancholic mood. "Have you ever seen something after its disappearance?" the girl asks. "Where are we right now?" the writer asks. "Somewhere in the past," the girl answers. Night after night some dreams lull them into sleep, but a heavy heart is lost in deep thoughts. What has actually happened and what the two girls are feeling, imagining or remembering starts to overlap. Is the scene of the outer world also becoming the self's inner world?



Moving Sand/Topos

Artifcial Intelligence is already changing almost every area of today. This documentary essay is inspired by the changes that influence our perception of Topos. By combining flm images, graphics with documentary text modules, the author associatively points out how the progress of data and technology colonizes human existence and fundamentally influences the balance between the psychological, mental, and biological aspects of life.
