This video is a part of my new series of videos "RAINBOW DOES NOT BELONG TO NOBODY" and it will be visible here, after my next solo-exhibition!
Besides that, from the very beginning of the video, we are thrown into post-socialistic reality of nowadays Bulgaria; actually it starts optimistically, showing us group of happily playing children. Later, it gets darker, but only to help the author to make a contrast even contradictory parallel between the art and real life, transforming the social message of the video in to a multi meaning metaphor of crossing the bridge between the imagination and reality. This video discusses the role of the artist in the contemporary society. It does not present the artist as somebody, who walks together, or against the mainstream, but rather as somebody, who walks on his own path. On the other hand, the video aims to remind us, that very often we are observers of unexpected, unforeseen and extraordinary phenomenon, but we are so deep in our thoughts about everyday life, that we miss them. We need to develop specific eyes about extraordinariness. The video also can be regarded as a metaphor, presented the "walk through life" as a walk through seven different colours, which symbolical meanings refer to seven stages of the spiritual development.
ven we can see the 'light' in the end of the tunnel.
