There was great reason to begin The Sneezing Pandas Project and it goes beyond animals.
Yes, the panda reference is there in black and white, as mega as the fauna itself and charismatic in every regard. Yet these are Viral Pandas. They are not black and white.
They are energies, existing only in the ether.
We are helped here with some of the words by artist Tullio DeSantis whose latest project transcribes the words “infinitesimal” and “inexpressible”, speaking of energy and existence.
This is where our minds meet.
You see, we are all digital enthusiasts.
The screen we stare at. The networks we cross. The images we see; the words; the pages… we absorb a global web of thoughts and ideas and shared experiences. We touch the lives of others and they touch ours. We find wisdom and kindness; hatred and obscurity, in all corners of the ether. Floating through a real, yet unreal force of digital yet tangible surroundings.
We ‘surf’, we ‘skim’, we ‘browse’.
This fascination for Online was a great reason to start the project and we are thrilled to be joined by others who share our passions. Here, DeSantis has produced with Pery Burge a video about the cosmos, but we agree it is just as easily a representation of the Internet.
Mesmerising in entirety we invite you to lose yourself in the colours, the words and the sounds of the ideas shaping in your mind…
Tullio DeSantis is an artist, writer, and teacher with an exceptional history in artistic collaboration and multimedia. We thank him for letting us share this very current and relevant piece of work. Below are some of the phrases we particularly enjoyed and would like to share. Re-play the video and think again:
Within an inexpressible nothingness … through a timeless duration … an instability arises.
Time … space.
Spawning new possibilities.
Time starts and space expands.
Infinitesimal aspects of virtual condiments in to momentary states between existence and non existence.
Space … time.
All energies in motion flowing from randomness.
Information becoming energy, becoming matter.
What is merely virtual becoming very real.
Movement of nothingness.
Everywhere and all at once.
Constant states of transformation.
Changing instantaneously from formlessness to form and back again.
Before, between, beyond, the ground of all being.
Persistent, perpetual flow.
Experienced by no-one.
And yet it is.
