Dreammachine, 05' 16", 2015
Starting from a personal experience, I begin to think on how people deal with a process of transformation to overcome some painful or traumatic circumstances. This process of transformation or to build up again, to resist, is similar to an engineering procedure where a material resist without braking, this is called: Resilience. The opportunity to think about this process come from a medical exam, MRI, that I had to take. The obsessive, annoying and very loud sound (noise) that I have concentrated on during the exam, could make the exam almost impossible to carry through, considering that you are close in a very narrow place similar to a technological coffin. The claustrophobic and suffocation feeling is very tough. But the hypnotic sound of the machine brings you in a kind of "Rave party", very close to a trance. If you close your eyes for the entire time of the exam you can experience something that may be pleasant. A sort of an abandon, a new dreamlike dimension. Memories come up out of nowhere, images fly in front of you and you can loose yourself in them, until you forget where you are.
