Vitaly Bezpalov, Antoine Donzeaud, Hayden Dunham, Josh Evan, Paul Pascal, Deirdre Sargent and Emir Esh Šehanović were invited to deepen the theme of CREEPY PASTA as a new frontier of experimental story poised between disturbing news and urban legend.
The work moves on two places shot in a motel room in Los Angeles and in the Las Vegas desert where the works insist on their ubiquity between a claustrophobic space that becomes a cage of thought and another dilated in which horizons and perspectives are lost.
The project is configured as the first experiment of the annual program NOWHERE: THE STATE OF UNREALITIES and sequel of ENDLESS BACK UP http://www.ultrastudio.sexy/portfolio/endless-backup/
ULTRASTUDIO announces the birth of the second space in Los Angeles with the aim of creating an ideal bridge between Europe and the United States becoming a borderland where the search for European artists merges and dialogues with that of overseas artists.
I travelled all night
Following a Coyote on the Highway
A Chinese head down in a corner laughed
Am I dreaming?
It’s there! It’s there!
There is the Snake.
Writings and graffiti and strange drawings
But once again night falls
And I’m drinking a Diet Coke
And I’m no longer thirsty
Not hungry anymore.
But far more important
I made a complete tour in this land of none
and at the end
I saw another me
of a second younger
So I resumed running
one second less
one second less
the other me tended to the et cetera
it was me
and I was the et cetera
and distance between us was created.
We both knew
not to be made for the present
We were destined for oblivion
We were destined to drift.
