Description: The repetitive patterns of Aeiki is inspired by kakaphonic pygmy music, outer space and states of trance where you lose yourself and become part of something bigger.
This made me think of rites, rituals and transcendende. Going out and getting drunk weekly serves a ritual purpose as well: It's not only of escapism from yourself and everyday life. It's also the hope that every once in a while, like the pygmies or explorers of space, we manage to become part of something bigger: A connection to a group, the world, perhaps even the universe. My aim was to build up to, and capture that fleeting moment where amidst a drunken stupor, the world seems like more. All too quickly the sun rises, the hangover starts kicking in, and we have to land on earth again. When I discovered the drunken Iphone videos I've been unknowingly shooting during parties the last two years, i knew how to approach the video. To my friends: Please forgive me. - Tobias
