Saturday 6th October, 4.15pm
Directed and Edited by Gabriel Shalom. Produced by KS12
This video essay / design fiction focuses on questions of identity and experience, time and place in a post-digital era. Featuring cyberpunk author Bruce Sterling and net artist Rafaël Rozendaal, among others. Shot on location in Eindhoven, Netherlands during the STRP Festival 2011. Timeless premiered at MU Eindhoven in January, 2012 and screened at Resonate Belgrade in March, 2012. The screening of Timeless at Alpha-Ville is its UK premiere.
The digital settles in as background. We remember less and query more. Our identity play would be considered schizophrenic in the last century. We have more friends than ever before yet know new frontiers of isolation. The quantification of our experience haunts us in the form of a persistent history. And we are distracted more than we ever knew possible. These circumstances are paradoxically a description of the near future and a diagnosis of the current state of affairs. The truly timeless is redefined – it has transcended that which is classic; it has become that which is never finished.
