This is a short video documentary of the mini-performance at the premiere of the video piece "The Return of Neptun" (that you can see at vimeo.com/45902638/ ) which was looping an a 22"screen with headphones and 2 carafes on each side. In the performance the carafes were gradually filled up by author/performer with port seawater, brought in with a sardine tin can... Special thanks to Ivan Radović for his excellent GoPro steady!
The whole piece is a topical and site-specific development from the "Catharsis of Neptun" performance-based installation from the 2011 edition of the Komiža New Media Port international summer school, where the author of this work also took part as mentor (c.f. vsu.ung.si/ustvarjamo/peter-purg/catharsis-of-neptune). Both were presented in the Komiža town reading room (Čitaona). To round up his Neptun trilogy project, 2013 will be seeing a further work by pETER Purg.. Stay tuned.
