TRAILER


"Agenbite of inwyt"
- James Joyce

"I have more than just one soul.
There are more I's than I myself.
I exist, nevertheless"
- Alberto Caeiro

"I'm not who I have in memory
Nor who is in me now."

- Fernando Pessoa

"Back when they used to celebrate my birthday
I enjoyed the good health of understanding nothing,
Of being intelligent in my family's eyes,
And of not having the hopes that others had for me.
When I began to have hopes, I no longer knew how to hope.
When I began to look at life, it had lost all meaning for me."

- Álvaro de Campos

4 ayes preview

for RELEASE, AUTUMN 2024

A frolic through the foreafter “in the aye”;
A tale told in four ayes
The four-abend of the other ayes;
An oculists nightmare;
A random drama dreamt by a database.

METHODOLOGY
Algorithgms of varying randomness source clips from a database compriosed of all the elements contained in the AYE films to randomly determine
* sequence,
* in-points,
* duration,
* tracks
* layers
and then automatically compile the results into a non-linear editing application, making four different "Greetings" which together make this overture to the three feature films "
i eye aye", "i 2 aye" and "3rd aye".




Trailer 1: 72 seconds


Trailer 2: The making of a random drama dreamt by a database

"I seen the likes in the twinngling of an aye. Som. So oft. Sim. Time after time."
- James Joyce
- himself
