launch video

Think about when you lose something, something important. Think about when your brain suddenly tells you that something is missing and then it tells you what is missing and finally it tells you that you don't know where that thing is. It is a moment of total and primeval solitude. Other people say think of the last place where you saw it or think of the last time you used it. And you keep thinking. In the meanwhile, you ransack everywhere, even where you perfectly know it cannot be. It is a moment of total and primeval fear. If this happened to everybody at the same moment, our species would be annihilated. Everybody suddenly wide-opening his eyes. Everybody thinking about the last place and the last time. Whole civilizations fallen a prey to forgetfulness, ransacking the world. We learnt to name things not to forget them when they are missing: that's why we still mention the second book of Aristotle's Poetics, the Etrurian language, Atlantis; that's why the coccyx reminds us that once we had a tail. Time is full of cones of shade. They scare us, the five of us. And fear excites us. Shades deserve our full admiration. Hallelujah.
