NUCLEUS³ uses audiovisual means to ask the question: what do we expect from the future? Today is the nucleus on which the the future is crystallising out of the past. According to this motto the creation is divided into 3 acts, which are referring to stories from the past, the clarity of the present and the chances for the future. Videos of St. Ludmila Church deform the facade, architectural elements are played as instruments and the inner structure of the church is made visible. The illustration and deformation of concise sections of the facade and the interior symbolise individual stories or episodes that are linked to the building and will be associated with it in the future. The church becomes the narrator of these stories. The emotionally charged images provide an intense experience and are meant to induce inspiration, tab into memories and create a diversity of interpretation by the viewers.
Date and place of the public screening: St. Ludmila Church, Praha, Czech Republic – From 11th to 14th of October
