Media enter the realms of imagination and coproduce a regime of communication. As a series of comments on media EVERGREEN is opening up paradoxical layers of our perception and different understandings of media translations.
Easily lost in the commodities of our society, the radicals of amusement ensure raw material for the present cynical need of utopia. Therefore, everything looks so homely ... Between terrorism and tourism, there is rather a need of micropolitics than the exposure of essential elements and scenes. EVERGREEN does not fetch dramatic interventions but subtle operations and sensual dynamics. EVERGREEN is a chain of actions: from Boris Mihalj to Gertrude Stein (1994) - from The Condition of the Working Class in England (1845) to robots - from the French chanson Ne me quitte pas to the Japanese notebook in white acrylic - from the current weather forecast to the symphony orchestra conductor's final explanation of EVERGREEN - from applauding to laughing of twenty-one green crocodiles. Creative media assimilate and scatter the pigeonholing into intermedia and performing arts, into sports and chess, into politics and art, etc. The family circle has expanded. The character of an individual or his work is no longer formed by merely two serious and clumsy family experts. EVERGREEN establishes fluid relationships among the big and the small and enables subtle operations and sensual dynamics to manifest themselves in the imperative of contemporaneity - the empathy. Through this, the whole world is wise again (as it always was).
