Two Suns

Two suns: one hot, one cold. In the film The Element of Crime, a character says to another another character: “There’s a special kind of evil around. You can feel it. You’ve seen the changes everywhere.” As much as Lost Signals set out to be a positive archive, an expression of solidarity against the darkness of our times, it seems inevitable that the materials we are dealing with here are steeped in a special sort of uncertainty. The renderings of this video, for instance, hot and cold as they are, suggest what some might characterize as a blankness. Not us. We find it heartening, those rotations, that call across the universe. These images were delivered to us from Korshiv, western Ukraine.
