Enjoy Right Now

When I arrived here, it though I saw a old friend, like a mirage of myself. when i started thinking over the date of the last post I though to myself ”Ho it wasn’t that long ago, that I last wrote here. Spreading a little bit of truth and a little bit of dreams… 31th oct.. ”
That was 361 days ago.
In the meanwhile life happened.

Always working hard with The Chaøs Chrønicles, a life journey project that evolves with me and Him. Follow the journey on Instagram.

We couldn’t imagine this unexpected journey through JAPAN was going to take us so deep in the paradoxes of this amazing country.

We left to Japan 2 week behind schedule, with no plan & no budget.
7750km – 7 weeks on the røad. We filled up 29 memory cards and bring 500+ Gig of datas and unforgettable souvenirs.
Thanks to few contributors, friends & family support, we made it.

 

 

Summer times: Our private studio was opened to public after 13 years of secrets. The Avignon theatre festival was a good opportunity for us to create a word to mouth event attracting exclusive clientel and local. A One time opportunity to discover a interesting line up of artist, presenting exhibitions, conferences, talks, spoken word nights and more.
Event for those who know.

To follow us around the world, find us on Instagram. but first, Introduction to the project…
The Chaøs Chønicles allow us to discover the world through the eyes of an iconoclast globe trottingcouple; a father, Lukas Zpira and his Daughter Maÿliss.Without any real itinerary, plan, or budget, but hungry for experiences, they travel the world often stepping off the beaten tracks, guided by incredible encounters. Between utopia and dystopia, their quest interrogates our convictions and leaves us filled with a strange mixture of hope and melancholy.

This world, Maÿliss has been observing it through the underground of sub cultures while travelling alongside her father since she was 5 years old. With this nomadic lifestyle, Lukas invites Maÿliss to an alternative type of education based on experiences, far from the school benches. She celebrates her sixteenth birthday in the middle of the United States during their first Chrønicles, and has since been observing our world through the lens of her camera «like through a microscope». Via these journeys and their most interesting encounters, we witness through the eyes of this atypical duo and the plurality of their perspective, an era oscillating between a past that will not die and a future yet to be born.

We rediscover our world with them. Maÿliss avidly soaking up everything she can, meanwhile Lukas is leaning more toward an analysis and assessment. The tasks are set naturally. Maÿliss is in charge of the photography and keeps the travel diary while Lukas writes. Both of them film images as well, though Maÿliss is most often on the forefront through interviews. Lukas is more withdrawn, appearing mostly via voice over narration. This dichotomy entices us to rethink our world which we often only see through the prisms of our certitudes.

Multimedia storytelling, these Chønicles began in 2010 but are an ongoing project that writes itself as the journey continues.
The project was born from a text, a manifesto uploaded on a simple blog. The first photographs appear and set the mood. The stage set like surroundings of our lives slowly starts to crumble to pieces, like the paint on a wall begins to chip off and we begin to see the other side, like peeking backstage. We discover through the images abandoned places, forgotten individuals, isolation, exclusion zones and those of the temporary autonomy (TAZ). We get a glimpse of the transition spaces of our world, its capacity to mutate and our ability to adapt.
The images proliferate and kilometres accumulate.

In early 2014, a team begins to take shape and enables the project to evolve, taking on its various forms. First in a transmedia dimension; merging short films, photography and essays, all accessible on a multi platform website or immersive installations, but the project has the ambition of going further with the elaboration of long feature films and books.So far Lukas and Maÿliss have started to work on 3 different Chrønicles; «U.S. Cøast to Cøast», «Central America» and «The Rise and Fall of Europe». They plan to go to Japan as well to begin a new Chrønicle «From Hiroshima to Fukushima» and hope to do one trip a year covering various countries or areas of the globe.

I am enjoying every moment of my 11 days left in New York. Every step is suppose to bring me a step closer from home, but I know since long time my home is right were I’m at. New York your full of magic, art, love, skyscraper, garbedge, people, memories, parks, shops, rats, restaurants, friends, taxis, bikes, delies, room with a view, room with no view, avenues, and so much more.

If Spike Lee what the director of the movie of my life, he would have to me to say “Fuck you” * but here I’m the director so fuck Spike Lee. New York I love you.

* a reference to the “Fuck you” scene of the 25th hour Spike Lee movie, one of my all time favorite.

25th hour, New York.

You know your in NYC when you see a man beein handcuffed in the subway station, when the police abuse of there power to make you  delete the shots, when you see a hot dog truck moving so much that look like someone was fuckig in it cause the guy is runing so fast making food for 10 workers at a time, when you see a taxi being toed away it’s like a symbol that is broke forever, reprenseting in it’s own way the fall of the american dream.When walking under the rain actually  feels cool, when you see a black dude in baggy jeans tutching his balls to look more viril, when the cashier that you never meet in you life calls you honney, when building  are so tall they reflec sun light making you doubt were is the real one. When you see a rabbin whit his hat in plastic wrap to avoid rain, when you  see the green signs with only written “14th E” and you know exactly  where you are,  when your favorite place is a 24h/7days a week gay own super kitch restaurant. When
In every street lies a opportunity of a life time, you just need to grab it. This, my friends is NYC.

MOVING FORWARD !

Since 4 years we have been working on an ambitious project…

The Chaøs Chrønicles.

IMG_20150523_013430 copyright IMG_20150523_013849 copyright IMG_20150523_144905 copyright IMG_20150523_145241 copyright63739_299006126975266_623079770738572976_n1544973_299005793641966_3364349699265307004_n

So far this project has been mainly self financed and also with the help of our contributors and Arte Creative’s support, we keep on going forward with a solid team and with the generosity of some friends but we’ve pushed our banker’s tolerance limits to the edge!

The project has never received any state aid or institution funding and has yet been made eligible for project proposals.
We don’t fit in any category!
Our search for co-production has only led us to encounter differences of opinions regarding the form of the project.
Therefore we’ve decided to create our own production company, we’ve organized several immersive exhibitions and premier screen viewings.
The feedback we received is really encouraging but we are seriously lacking funds to keep going…
We’d love to show everything we have stocked in our hard drives and make this movie on the U.S. we’ve been working on for months!
So we’ve decided to launch this crowd funding.
We’re calling out to you, friends, family or spectators.

The only way these independent projects can see the light of day is with the interest they trigger and they rely on word of mouth, social media, and how the viewers can be implicated in the projects by participating in these new forms of financing.
We are doing everything we can to be part of these projects, but it won’t be possible without you.
