"Collider" project works with Time, space, science, urbanism and history. This large long-term project began in the USA, in Dallas (on place of John F. Kennedy assassination). A project is dealing with the events which took place in different urban landscapes and had an influence on subsequent historical development. A project will examine the iconic places of USA, Russia and Ukraine of XX-ХХІ сenturies (I'm working now) in panoramic projections under silver domes. Thus bringing over Ukraine to the world context apealing to the Chernobyl' catastrophe, Orange revolution etc. It is a work that includes the elements of science, urbanism, history and new technologies. A collider, it is the system of two beams of particles that are accelerated and the beams are directed against each other, so that the particles collide while flying in opposite directions. This process can be used to make strange and anti-matter. If the latest theory of Tom Weiler and Chui Man Ho is right, the Large Hadron Collider (which its self according to mass-media can cause the danger of Apocalypse) -- the world's largest atom smasher that started regular operation last year -- could be the first machine capable causing matter to travel backwards in time. And time, as known, is one of basic concepts of physics and philosophy, one of co-ordinates of space-time, presented in the project by projected video that consists of 24 fragments with a moving image, which will be revolved with acceleration in artistic collider, activating mechanism of audio-visual jumps, where certain fragments gradually will be substituted by the archival videos. For realization of the project I'm looking for the specific fragments of the archival materials and do video from the same position in Chernobyl' area, Independence Square in Kiev, Potiomkin Stairs in Odesa (both revolutionary and cultural phenomenon), in place of WTC memorial in New York and next to the White House in Moscow. It is possible to develop "Collider" project further examining the Geumnamno street in Kwangju (South Korea), the Tianaman Square in Beijing (China), Berlin wall (Germany), Freedom Square in Tbilisi (Georgia), Paradis (Fardus) Square (now is Freedom Square) in Baghdad (Iraq), Mexico City's Zócalo and Paseo de la Reforma (Mexico), Tahrir Square in Cairo (Egypt). It is a critical art that testifies today's social reality and its traumas. It is important as an approach in art to certify and record some corporal feeling of contemporaneity, for sake of the future.
"Collider" project, working with the events, that have formed the world which we live now, raises question: is a man a particle in the system of accelerators of global forces, or energy of interaction investigates new values, new forms of thought and new ways of existence in the world, insisting that 'another world is possible'?
