C-BEAMS

This project was made on the occasion of Luminous Flux/Reflected Overlays on Locative Norms workshop organized by Campus Novel in Syros island in July 2015.

I am a lighthouse.
I look like as I am stuck here, as time has stopped.
Isolated and halted, as nothing changes on me.
But I have a secret.
This is only how I look during day.
At night I slowly transform into something else.
I leave the ground and loose all material weight,
I become a ghost, a body without organs,
I become a light that travels and meets others, I become with the night.
I am never stable, never the same, I move constantly along time and space.
This is my secret.
I have seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die. (Blade Runner, Ridley Scott dir., 1992)
