«The starting point of the video installation conceived by Cogitore is based on two unexplained phenomena having physical origins: the supposed perception of sounds emitted by the Northern Lights, and the appearance of a mysterious luminous object in Alaska. In both cases, superstitions and the Inuit and Saami belief systems have disturbed the quest for scientific explanations. Through the images and stories produced by these phenomena, a tale is set midway between a personal and a collective mythology, between scientific protocol and ritual celebration, between fiction and documentary. Stratospheric images, reflected on the ground, are confronted with a dispersion in the darkened space of a polyglot voice and celestial music, composed by Francesco Filidei and Lorenzo Bianchi Hoesch, two Italian Avantgarde composers, leading to both a loss of spatial markers, and a disturbance of the senses.»
