Concept-Creation: Bill Psarras Music composed by Ludmilla My Side Year: 2011
'Nostalgia' creates a video artistic narrative through animated 2D compositions; based on a nostalgic human figure within the city. In particular, the focus on the spatial emptiness (streets, empty spaces) and the liminal mood, constitute the perfect public space to locate the element of the public urban screen as a medium of blue skies transmission. The city is empty, static and there is everywhere a feeling of blasé attitude, according to Surrealists. Even in this emptiness, unfolded CCTV cameras observe and record the strange habit of this figure to stand and gaze in front of the big screens. Other selected elements are there to complete the ambience of this landscape; a landscape which balancing between surrealism, romanticism and symbolism. The artist insist on depicting blue skies and clouds through the medium of public screen in which the pixel aesthetic triggers the emotional intensity of the figure and thus the need of a (symbolic) escapism and returning to a personal memory database.
