transarcadia 4.3

The animation combines Greek mythology with storytelling and is formed by surround and stereo sound, visual materials and audio recordings. By merging different elements and contents of high and low culture within a new context and time frame, this body of work becomes a platform of speculation and throwing questions: about humankind and its search for a place where all the questions can be answered and all yearnings can be satisfied. The so called Arcadia, an earthly place of total happiness and love, is the place. In greek mythology, the sphinx is a figure which terrorizes humankind by setting puzzles. Even nowadays it seems to hide some treasures of huge importance for understanding the humankind. Immortality, artificial recreation as much as AI(Artificial Intelligence) are hardly any speculative future fantasies, but determine our longings of modern humankind. Would this-a simple exceeding of societal restriction-fulfill all our longings?
