Experiencing Interruptions?


'A Long Time ago, every Woman, every Man were Stars.
Now the "stars" look down on screens'
A young woman gets in a sitting room.
Three characters are watching on their
smartphones. They hardly notice her presence.
The young woman tries to communicate with them.
They appear to be in an altered state of consciousness, compulsively scrolling on their devices.
The young woman is annoyed by their alienated indifference.
She gets up leaving on the coffee table an audio cassette.
Music starts. A woman is in corner.
An eye is watching her.
Several characters appear.
The eye follows them, scrutinazing them.
The eye multiplies. Eyes are everywhere.
Eyes are looking at us from all our electronic devices.
Welcome to the transpersonal tech-world.
A dimension of human experience that transcends
the sense of self-identity
beyond the borders of personal awareness.

Please Note: "The soundtrack of this film-clip
is an original track from the 1981, previously
published only on a self-produced audio cassette."

Director Biography - peppe de marco

Has been active in the Italian artistic scene since 1980, beginning as graphic artist and painter. Adventurous in experimenting with new materials and techniques, he has then moved on to produce a digital art that creatively combines the material and the digital, the real and the virtual.
In 1985 his founding of Mediavox, a multimedia lab of artistic experimentation that applies new media to artistic production, allowed Giuseppe to extend his presence to the rest of Europe and North America.
Fundamental to Giuseppe’s work is the artist’s belief in art as a means of political intervention and change in society. This is the spirit that drives all numerous artistic events in which he has featured, as painter, designer, and performer.
Giuseppe’s digital art is characterized by the transfiguring and over-exposing, a sort of X-raying, of the real; the highlighting of the intrusion of infection and sickenss in the innermost recesses of the mind.
