This project has a history which dates back to the year 2017: I drove one full day by car to the Polish city Gdansk, where I had the possibility to use a light-flooden AirBNB apartment as a photostudio. During the travel I nearly lost the exhaust system of my car. I repaired it, but I had to drive slow, very slow. No freeway, damaged car… I had a lot of time to think about the project, to imagine it, to dream it. The projects name was “The Art Of Surviving One Day On Planet Earth In 2017”: A kind of surreal photographic cycle which refreshes classical iconography and repowers photography by using a fresh, but understandable iconology of modern fairy tales, like Starwars, but …with a “dark mode”. For the outdoor location shots I worked at the Milano Airport and in Bergamo, Later this photos were converted into animated glitch-art pictures and formed into an avant-guard AV video (“Surviving The Purple Prophecy”). This artvideo part of the official selection of the famous art-meets-Tech festival “The New Art Fest 2020” in Lisbon.
