ENTOPTIC & TACIT
”Images and texts from my archive, from 1987 through 2013. ENTOPTIC is an image archive created as a general background for readings (similar to VJing at DJ performances), in the tradition of poetry readings (which are many times accompanied by music or image). Each reading, each venue brings new images and new categories related to a particular subject, thus the image archive permanently grows. Each slide has a particular timing according to the total measure of reading needed. There is a poly-semantic oscillation of frequencies made by categories like childhood, kiss, broken piano, blackbird, pamphlet of alternative, resistance, perception / reception, tacit, entoptic, psychoactive, hallucination, rave, peregrination, horror, violence, destruction, basics, melancholy etc., all pictures come from Google images search... TACIT are those texts read, the spoken word part.“ B. Ondreicka
