Secret Calculations of Dervish Z

(single channel, 3D glasses, stereo sound, TRT: 26’) is a collection of psychological, spiritual and intellectual artifacts presented in three parts. Obsessive numbers and codes emerge from a stream of thoughts as whirling, abstract forms. Driven by desire and intent, polluted by ego and purified by revelation, this reverie carries itself forward to an inevitable conclusion.

In this 3D movie by video artist and animator Vila and composer Weinstein, mutant forms and audio detritus are fed into a vortex, reduced to digital plasma, and recombined by utilizing ancient techniques known to induce ecstatic states in the viewer. Based on research revealed by the Rand Corporation, the Kabbalah and Nicola Tesla, this project celebrates the promise of spontaneous evolution.
