“Funny business, a woman’s career. The things you drop on the way up the ladder so you can move faster. You forget you will need them again when you get back to being a woman.”

Bette Davis in ALL ABOUT EVE by Joseph L.Mankiewicz (USA 1950)

Penetrating an interactive surface, we encounter the world of Gas Avalon, where completely different rules apply. Bullets serve as forms of locomotion; artistic genres depict a landscape of placelessness. Man and art transcend to vapor in a power station. As atoms of a soul that has the gift of reason, we return to reality.

A young man is seeing through other people’s eyes, struggling to find his own perspective. Ventriloquists mistake themselves for their doll. Sleep is preserved inside an hour glass as a mirror of one’s own dreams. Sometimes all the pieces fit together, but the picture makes no sense at all.

Real excitement is always kind of out of focus. Unfortunately. All joy lies buried in a blind rush and hasty perceptions. That’s why I never got my eyes lasered.
