Full Circle — apologia of darkness and light
Ellipsis, black, silver, ghostly white
slowly turning on its own axis
the pirouette of a mind
bowing to its indulgence
the creature is coming back
reflections of a silver crescent
Mirror or Moon?
Darkness and Light
refracting, bending waves
so that we may see
the extension of the obscurity
that divides us.
And for a second another dimension cracks through
fog wavers brushing an invisible veil
as sound bursts through the portal
like a drum in a valley
a beautiful ashy mist carried by beats
that deeply connected us, Children of the light.
is it that
we want to help each other because we are each other?
I am me because of you, not in spite of
in a barren land with a cultivated rose
that uses its one seed to twist a root
like euphoric jazz beats
demons fray and smoulder in the Circle of light
like the slow tremor of a piano key
bursting through deep, heaving bass
a mist that crushes fear
that propels, that enhances
a magnificent feverish glow.
mesh of questions, who are you?
A sweet spot where darkness blends into light
the pervading, grungy, powerful echoes of sound
wrapped in themselves,
taking the burden off our eyes
mesmerizing and grand
as it is bewildering.
Music is meant to be felt
like love in a black temple of unbroken sound
where we are all kinder in the turbid haze
Schooled by the lessons of a city that floats
where dreams perpetually unfold
and nonsense is always just a flickering.
The art, the feeling, musings on DIAPOSITIVE 1.2 by Amsterdam-based visual artist duo Children of the light. The work is seen here as part of the visual residency for De School nightclub. It is a physical manifestation of light and darkness occurring as a blended force of duality, and pervaded by sound.
