WEEKEND aka Primul pas pe luna / 2009

video (1’56’’) & installation
WEEKEND aka First step on the moon is exploring the daily space and its changes on the globalization background.
Under the globalization, the Eastern contemporary space is permanently altering shape and its content after the western pattern using similar social, politic and cultural cliché. In the same time, borrowing a standardized life style and consumerism creates hybrids that take to the lost of a geographical identity. The contemporary man entertains himself in malls and mega commercial areas, living illusory into an artificial space guided by the advertising mirage.
The space we live or we consume our existence in, is transforming, slowly and subtle in to a fantastical world. The human evolution stages generally, or of a society is stocked in the collective memory and putted up to date by the individuals. After a bitter communism, the transition is creating new specie without coordinates.
When we were little we use to like and S.F. and we were incited by their whole scenography.
Today, the neighborhoods are still keeping “relics” from “the golden age”, reminding us of dreams and childhood. We are living S.F. into a transitory almost extraterrestrial space.
The countdown is starting:
10. The ball felt into the water.
09. The extermination of one or more civilizations‘s memory is the current motive of the great powers. “…This is the beginning of good friendship…!”
08. Give me your ball!
07. The neighbor from the 2nd floor is just taking the water hose out of the window to spoil our playground.
06. I lived in this house. He played with his brother every day.
05. The astronaut makes us a sign with his scarf.
04. What do you prefer: tea or coffee with milk?
03. Dear mother, I want to tell you something…
02. Her question was very polite!
01. This is so fantastic!!!

“The human memory is registering and preserving information about all kinds of phenomenon and events as well as the entire gamut of experiences accessible on individual and communitarian level.”
The stages of humanity, roughly speaking, or of a society are being stocked in the collective memory and putted up to date by individuals. It is interesting to notice in what measure are the individuals influenced by this fact and how much are they accepting to merge with a certain pattern – image, with a certain brand or trend, with this evolution and in what measure the free will and the emotional investment are reflected in to their private living style (?).
In the same time, borrowing styles and consumerism are creating hybrids that lead us to a loss of a geographical area’s identity / memory.
Is the surrounding ambient result a product of several cumulated elements: society’s evolution, technology, globalization, geographical area, social condition, culture, aesthetical preferences, information’s accessibility, the desire of an alignment to certain today’s standards?
In what measure are the past, the present and the future reflected into these habitats?
Are we the 2000’s?
