Nouvelle Science Vague Fiction
Experimental doc. | hdv | color and b&w | 20'37'' | Spain / Netherlands | 2011
?Nouvelle Science Vague Fiction? focuses on the relationship between construction and analysis of human ecologies. This raises as a syntactic space in which connections are made between analytic situations and scientific perception (verisimilitude scales), non-experiential learning derived from technological imaginary (estrangement and projection) and levels of configuration of ideal and critical conscience (new orientation forms). An off-screen voice in the position of a ?super observer? guides us through various possible ends of the world, in a markedly objective tone; leaving these apocalyptical prophecies behind, it concludes with some irony on the spectator?s role and the meaning of those events and images, that nobody will ever be able to contemplate. The soundtrack is made in collaboration with the musician Jonathan Saldanha from sound recordings of the black hole Sagitarius A*, located in the centre of the Milky Way, captured by the Dwingeloo Radio Telescope in the Netherlands. The composition has been transferred to vinyl disc which is imaged by a scanning electron microscope with a magnification of ten thousand times, giving rise to a landscape impossible to perceive by simple view.
