Stories From the Old Ruin - part I of Passage to Utopia

1986, Video, 15:00 (Colour Black & White, Mono)

by Brian Batista, Irit Batsry

Stories from the Old Ruin juxtaposes reports of disintegration of modern and ancient civilizations. “Time has somehow collapsed and with it all conventional methods of getting at the truth... We imagined the last eternal night was one which should destroy the earth and the Gods together”, the narrative concludes, as “imagining assumes a greater VERACITY THAN WITNESSING, AND ARTISTS’ IMAGES, prove to have greater verisimilitude than photographers’ documents” (Estella Casto from catalogue of The Columbus Video Festival.)
