Soundwalk collective :
VIBRATIONS & RESONANCES of Berghain
“Last Beat” is a sound project that resonates the architecture of the legendary Berlin club Berghain, playing the material structure of the building as a musical instrument. Tuning resonant frequencies to excite the architectural surfaces of the club, the Soundwalk Collective arranges and processes a live feedback loop produced by pulses and tones played through the sound system and into the walls of the building. Captured with contact microphones in real-time, the rhythmic and resonant properties of metal and glass create a call-and-response with the building.”
1.sensual pleasures: the great symbolic happiness of a higher happiness and highest hope, the earth’s garden-joy, an overflowing of thanks to the present from all the future. 2. lust for power: the fearsome teacher of the great contempt, the dark flame of living bonfires, which rides upon every horse and every pride. the flashing question-mark beside premature answers. 3. the selfishness: for such is the nature of cowardly souls!
leave with sunrise
locking doors naked
at least -
you brought some water,
at most -
you left your gum on my bedside table,
as a monument of your sexuality
but the material is too primitive,
so it will go in the trash immediately
and after an unknown interval
we resume the pretentious physical
with given terms to be secretive
interaction non obtrusive
a performance in 3 acts which tests your mutual understanding of pairing. didn’t we say it takes two to make a thing go right. . ?
this non-defensive message of our distorted sentiment will unfold silently. and in the dark.
with only a mere suggestion of light hanging on a string by my side, which invites you to interact.
subjective and perversive through surrealist fragments and body parts.

The privilege is on the tip of your wings. You aim higher, beyond where destruction has invaded. Layer by layer you try to go further and overcome the change that’s out of your control. But for you there are no borders, no laws, no politics. Just nature and love for one another, values of staying together, sharing the atmosphere, moving forward. Looking down on the human race , jailed in its ego and prejudice, stuck in its limits and standards of shallowness…
Let them look up to you and wonder…
how must it feel to have wings?
to never look back? to accept the impermanence of things?
…let it become the natural unconscious or the aknowledged fact.
let it be sincere, without any mask
wish them to believe that the soil is still fertile
the clouds still pure and that any transition helps to create something new.
dont let the time just carry you.
welcome to 2012
. . .
at first it seemed to pollute the view as u glanced above.
dozens of black lines splitting the sky.
but the camera would wonder at all angles anyway, as it does.
and my perception crossed the threshold of ugly -
unique forms stretched above you,
different geometric structures.
inspiring organised chaos
such creation manifested within an organic setting.

This technique has remained equally useful in a more commercial applications. Redesigning McCann Erickson Moscow, i have decided to implement bright linear patterns and wrap colour around structures. Complimentary to photography.

Seeding your belief into the soil, obscurely raw and humid. Aware of depths, aspiring beyond the surface and towards the golden dust, in control of its gravity. Without distinctive end or a beginning,in cycles of nocturnal flowing into morning dawn. Transcending shadows through your stillness, illuminating your most precious gift – the one that hides within you and which helps you shift.
like dust on vertical surfaces
in control of its lightness,
tight strings in parallel lines
measured axis of notes
held amongst us in patterns of gratitude.
in perversion with alien flesh,
deep reflections of present and history
in my recycling trash.
i was looking
for my own reflection in your eyes
to see my inner self.
as u held that perfect mirror out in front of me,
i knew it was the right moment
to position mine too.
as we held our two mirrors in parallel
and sent one another reflections
which seemed to travel for eternity
at this certain perspective.
it opened such vast horizons,
it felt like they would multiply forever.
But the two mirrors wouldn’t stand still.
they are set in motion. to grow . develop. and evolve.
and even if they evolve in parallel time, they will not necessarily
move with the same speed or the same direction.
then it occurs that you are no longer facing that second mirror.
the reflection has lost its continuum.
You have lost your reflection in the eyes of the other.
You must now reflect inward upon yourself.
[inspired by Maria Ionova-Gribina]
between memories and visions
by our dear mediterranean waters.
beneath them , underneath them,
we wouldn’t miss a day
you liked to observe thru ur underwater optics
the way my body formed fluid geometrics
until we both got tired by the tidal motion
and spread our bodies on a rocky surface
beneath the scorching sun
The appearance of the organic has always fascinated me more than man-made structures. The element of nature is far less obvious in the city among the overpowering domination of the human-built. My attention is drawn to the detail of the organic fighting to survive amongst city’s chaos. My personal lack of contact with nature whilst exposed to the city provokes me to explore the natural world, which does manifest within this overpopulated and polluted urbanism. Therefore I often seek to capture natural elements, which remind me that I am a living being, not a mechanic of the metropolis.
Black and white [and shades of such] emphasize my frequent attitude towards the appearance of the city and harnesses attention to shapes and textures of the botanical. I observed how plants implement themselves between bricks and fences, how the rain deposits on surfaces as puddles, frost or condensation. At times watching foxes which mate restlessly and daily in my back garden and always impressed by the solitude of one lonesome swan I encounter on the canal so often – the urban views featuring hints of nature from part of my daily visual accounts.
