To Pier Paolo Pasolini, life itself and one’s actions within it were a form of poetry. This philosophy is a key influence on my way of living, of understanding life and its real magic. Today, 8th September 2016, these two creative events echoed each other and I feel deeply happy.
1. It’s a dream come true: my space loving and pioneering heart blasted off through the stratosphere, part of a rare adventure gathering explorers from all around the world. This photograph from the STELLIFEROUS series has been launched into space aboard the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, at 7:05pm EDT! Stored on a microchip, it will travel a total of 7 years to the asteroïd Bennu and back, then stay in space for millennia on a stable orbit around the Sun after mission completion. The hand refers to some of the earliest and most humble human art forms — the hand stencil — and pushes the limit of this promethean creative urge further into space.
2. My song AR 2529 FLARE, referring to the flare unleashed by the heart-shaped sunspot AR 2529 that happened on the 17th of April 2016, has been broadcasted by the experimental art radio RADIOPHRENIA. More infos here.
