Screening: Most Dismal Swamp presents Dismal Session 007: Memories From the Uncanny Valley by Alexandra Koumantaki

A distance from the past, Will make a better future.
A quiet war destroyed everything.
We all had forgotten what violence was. The catastrophe was gratifying.
Kissed and embraced us goodnight.
When it woke up.
It wasn’t what it used to be.
No form. No body.
Only an idea of a memory. The last words were...
“Everything it’s going to be ok” It made it more angry.
It crawl into the dust of sweet end. And resurfaced.

Dismal Sessions is an ongoing series of dank mixes, fermented visions, sacred files, trash vector collect calls, ambient occlusions, cursed ASMR, sublime leaks, and bad datasets hosted by Most Dismal Swamp.

HD video, Clay, silicone, wires, LED

Filmed in Naxos island, Greece in summer 2019

All materials composed and edited by Alexandra Koumantaki, Athens 2020
