INFO

ANANTA

Mythological name of the Ananta ambience refers to a cosmic snake that bites its own tail and squirts its poison into it, taking a strong hold of the base of the world. This base, or the centre, is the idea of the Absolute, which is All and/or Nothing. It is emptiness, a hole in its literal, architectural meaning or, symbolically, an invisible concentration of energy. By circulation, this symbolical body of snake/time grows spirally with its material dialectics of life and death, creation of Time out of itself. This techno-spiritual ambience is site-specific and also a set for a happening deprived of action, that is, a symbolical indication of an invisible continuous happening we do not even think about, buried in our Microcosms.

Modern ways of surviving in post-industrial age have created an atmosphere of fragmented views. an ability to note the connection between cause and effect may look as unnecessary effort, which one can easely abandon by plesant indulgence in the shift of rapid sensations. It seems as though authentic grip of reality, as well as of spirituality, is no longer possible in the media-contaminated world. Only few people, those who do not recoil from the use of technology but at the same time do not wish to glorify it, still belive in intuitive spiritual shifts that should happen parallelly with its development, and help us to survive.
