(...)From Five Angels for the Millennium (2001), five individual video sequences (Birth Angel; Fire Angel; Ascending Angel; Creation Angel; and Departing Angel, pictured) projected directly onto the walls of a darkened gallery.
'Five Angels came out of a three day shoot in Long Beach that I had undertaken for several other projects. All I knew was that I wanted to film a man plunging into water, sinking down, below, out of frame - drowning. 'A year or so later, going through this old footage, I came across five shots of this figure and started working with them - intuitively and without a conscious plan. I became completely absorbed by this man sinking in water, and by the sonic and physical environment I had in mind for the piece.
'When I showed the finished work to Kira [Perov], my partner, she pointed out something I had not realised until that moment: this was not a film of a drowning man. Somehow, I had unconsciously run time backwards in the five films, so all but one of the figures rush upwards and out of the water. I had inadvertently created images of ascension, from death to birth.' Bill Viola, 3 June 2003

«The masses are rushing, running, charging through the age. They think they are advancing, but they are simply running on the spot and falling into the void, that is all», observed Kafka.

An Opening: sweatpants designed by Patrick Killoran to satisfy male physical urges and pleasures.
Inflatable Breasts Dress - Now, you can pump up your breasts to whatever size you want, and adjust them on the fly. Because of the location of the valves, you can inflate your breasts before you put on the dress, or have someone else blow them up for you while you wear it.

Há aqui um lapso, é evidente. Ou um salto para outro plano. Mandei a Umbelina procurar pelos cantos e recantos da velha casa deserta o óculo do meu teodolito, depois fui para o liceu.
