Dan Oki - NAVIGATIONS (1995)
From Croatian Experimental Film and Video of the 1990s (1994-1998)
Dan Oki, pr. Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, Betam SP, colour, 9’, 1995
Combination of film, computer animation and video which meditatively questions the element of water as primeval philosophic beginning and the omnipresent life force. Piece is an encyclopaedic sample of different elements that have water as their topic. Sticking to the encyclopaedic presentation, Oki ends with questions and terms in seven languages (Greek, Latin, English, German, French, Russian and Croatian) about Non-being (like the drowning man) or (the puzzling nature of) tangible objects.
