Fragments out of the the live cinema piece "Transience" by Ofer Smilansky.
'Transience value is scarcity value in time’ Freud
Transience is an audiovisual performance in which digital distortion of natural elements and found objects offers a reinterpretation of the symbolism contained in the 17th century still lives called Vanitas. The intention of the artist is to celebrate the beauty of the transience nature of things. While in these paintings the objects themselves act as reminders of the passing of time that leads to decay and death, in Transience their treatment in time and space recreates such impression. The natural elements and found objects are filmed on a macro level and are given sonic properties. Thus a kind of surreality made of dreamy landscapes emerges, characterised by sharp visual contrasts and intense rhythmical changes.
Transience is performed live on large scale screen and sound system.
