Never Wake Up, 2001/1016, 3:00
movie created by media artist Agricola de Cologne. It is based on the artist’s poem of the same name.

Subject:
Loss of identity: Soldiers become distorted, veterans of war are not able to be reintegrated in society.

The poem/movie uses some fundamental images:
The soldier= metaphor for the human individual
War=metaphor for life, respectively the fights of all day life
Veteran of War=the human being who can not rid of the Shadows of the Past.

The work is developed according the principle of SAMAC – (Simultaneous Associative Media Art Composing) which describes Agricola’s individual way of experimental electronic writing: words, sound, images, animation, music and voice performance are developed simultaneously –depending on each other – in one long single process.
Voice and sound performance by Agricola de Cologne. The movie is directed and produced by Agricola de Cologne in 2001.
