Kim Stanley Robinson på Bloom Festival i Søndermarken, Kbh. 28.5.22

– There IS no Planet B

 

BLOOM FESTIVAL er en efterhånden mangeårig fritænker- og planetpasser-tradition, der udspiller sig i Søndermarken, en have i København på hele Valby Bakke.

Om arrangementet siger BLOOM:

Science fiction er vor tids realisme. For hvordan ser planetens fremtid ud, og hvordan kan science fiction hjælpe os med at gentænke natur, økologi og klima?

Den verdensberømte science fiction-forfatter Kim Stanley Robinson fortæller om sit forfatterskab.” 

[ Og ikke mindst Ministry For The Future, som da for pokker snart må blive oversat til dansk. ]

Scene: Summer

Lørdag 28.05, 15.30-16.15

Hearsay Hørtsagt – et Flugtkatalog – festivalintro 1 af 2

– dem, der løber fra branden

 

Michael Svennevigs festival FORVANDLING 2022 har inviteret os, kenneth krabat og Cindy Lynn Brown, til at fortælle om vores projekt “HEARSAY HØRTSAGT – et Flugtkatalog”, som pt. består af 350+ digte skrevet på et spørgsmål om hvordan man skriver digte om flygtningesituationen, og dertil indlæsninger, artikler, videoer, links mv.

“FORVANDLING: “Tidlig sommer 2016, det er da, at det begynder for os. Otte måneder før vi skriver en fælles projektbeskrivelse til Statens Kunstfond, og fire dage før vi bliver kærester, har vi en dag sammen i Ljubljana mellem to rejser og tager på kunstmuseum, hvor der viser sig at være en særudstilling over håndtegnede flugtruter gennem Europa.” Læs mere

“Tidlig sommer 2016, det er da, at det begynder for os.

Korte, nøgterne sætninger beskriver rejserne med detaljer og fakta om antallet af mennesker bag i varevognen, antallet af druknede på vej over Middelhavet, prisen for at krydse grænsen. Vi bliver i adskillige timer, nærstuderer hver og én af de meterlange plancher, fotograferer dem alle i så store bidder som afstanden til den anden væg tillader. Kortene bliver hos os, da vi går derfra.” 5 år efter resulterer det i ”HearSay HørtSagt”. Læs mere

Time Travel definition in fiction

 

This is my guide for my Time Travel Movie list – things to consider, when digging up titles.

NB: Be aware of plot-spoilers in method and tags – let people mess up their own viewing pleasure via imdb and RT.

PERSPECTIVE

Who is the POV of the story?
Evaluation of the Time Travel theme lies with this view.

Time Travel is a matter of perspective:
Who or what leaves the orderly progression of events, and who is visited by persons, data or objects of a later or earlier data?

Life lived out of sync
with everything else from the perspective of the observing eye – either ageing faster or slower in relative measurement.

HOW:

Entropic decay of bio-matter will co-exist with matter either younger or older life in relative terms calculated from the assumed beginning of the present cosmological expansion.

Matter instantaneously moved to a different position in space – usually on  an earlier or later position of Earth in space or in its vicinity.

Matter taking up space out of sync with universal expansion of matter.

CLASSIFICATION TERMS
a matter of POV

ENTROPIC DELAY
Decay of matter is slowed down for some, while entropy progresses remains the same for others; decay of matter is a relative term

  • Rip van winkle is the classic of the man, who slept for 20 years without ageing
  • Cryogenics: technology freezing and thawing – from the general idea that matter decays slower when colder
  • Suspended Animation: another term for the same, without the tech-lingo
  • Slow/Fast Motion: faster/slower ageing relative to observer point of view
  • FTL, Faster Than Light travel: comparatively those on the ship are younger than those at home, when they return
  • Skirting the black hole: Same result as FTL. of the ship escapes the pull of the black hole’s mass

NEGATIVE or REVERSE ENTROPY
Time regarded as a recording on a cassette tape or backup storage of an earlier date (eg. Apple’s software technology “Time Machine backup…”)

  • Rewind time: Undo events by returning to a point, where the future “hasn’t happened yet”
  • Time in reverse: Observable from a point in time – The rose is seen to return from dust to sprouting bud, the world around goes backwards in time
  • Outside of Time: Entropy continues as normal locally (eg. in the body), while entropy in the world around is at any stage ofdecay
  • Alltime: Same as Outside of Time – imagining “all events” contained inside something, eg. the universe, while residing in the greater Cosmos without time and entropy

RECURRING EVENTS
Points of View cause events through observation, all events are subjective except for larger themes (names, data and places, normally – but even these can differ between observers)

  • Loop: From observer POV events repeating from a certain moment in time, usually without volition, “it just happens”
  • Undoing time, undoing fate: Instantly return to a moment in time and change events from then on
  • Events in reverse, reset time: observe or be part of undoing events back to certain moment in time

METHOD
The how of access to a different era

  • Time Travel or just TT – the obvious ability of device, object or person to change position in space faster or slower in relation to matter expanding at a rate set by the beginning of all matter
  • TT science – moving matter to “an earlier or later point in space” by the aid of physics
  • Time Machine – a controllable device moving matter to “an earlier or later point in space”
  • teleportation – decomposition of matter to reassemble at a different point in space and (assuming the proces is not instantaneous) time by magic or technology
  • portal – an opening “between ages”, time rift, hole, doorway
  • cosmological – black hole, white hole, warp speed, FTL, subspace travel (“outside of time”)
  • magic – object, formula, or other non-explainable mode of moving objects or living beings to another era
  • data over ages – live communication between ages – between “other nows”, “clair-voyence”, “clair-audience”, “visions”
  • mind travel – to live as or in the mind of another in another era, body swopping over time, virtual reality – digitisation from flesh to bits and back to body, bio->computer interface is fast-time,
  • dreaming – confirmable information received or influential actions undertaken in dream
  • reincarnation – being death and experiencing it (from entropy to zero entropy, maybe) and coming back to life, experiencing several lives in or out of chronological sequence,

TIME PHILOSOPHY
these are not necessarily mutually exclusive…

time as a river – philosophically a constant flow in a fixed river “bed”, but any “points” outside of fixed observation are unordered and in total disorganisation, events are subjectively reported, and as such exist solely from observation, and no event can be repeated

block universe, fate, fixed causality, “time as a loaf of toast bread”, going “back” in time leads to the “same” events; what happens HAS happened, what happens WILL happen, NOW and SIMULTANEITY is a matter of directional perspective in the physical universe, people are alive and a given age at any point in past or future

Multiverse, “all actions cause possible realities of actions not done”, “other dimensions of reality”, every action is a branching universe, time travel creates another universe to accommodate change in “flow of time”in the block universe, NOW may share universal creation, birth and age would be similar in parallel realities, but the effect of branching reduces the likelihood of similar parallel realities

Infinite Multiverses, the theory that the limited number of ways the particles in the Universe can be arranged causing replicated Universes, where things are potentially the same in some and very different in others

Daughter Universes is the theory that a universe exists for every possible outcome, meaning from one thing changed in a parallel reality to “non-existence”

[Here is a list of 8 types of TT, each requiring a “special universe]

DIRECTIONS

  1. mono-directional – going back or forth, but not returning to point of departure, earlier or later date
  2. bi-directional – back and forth between points in time
  3. frozen time – only one or a few can move and breathe…

PURPOSE
can function as a non-spoiler of the film or make method or theme overly obvious

  • visiting the Past – main characters visit the past
  • visiting the Future – main characters visit the future
  • visitors from the Past – main characters are visited by characters from the past
  • visitors from the Future – main characters are visited by characters from the future
  • Basic Time Travelling – main characters travel freely in time
  • Gaining advantage over the present by going to the past – eg to change events
  • Gaining advantage over the present by going to the future – eg. to get historical information
  • Personal reasons
    • Stopping or freezing time,
    • escaping a Time Loop,
    • stopping ageing,
    • visiting dead people,
    • killing people in the past
    • getting rich in the past with future knowledge,
    • escaping their present,
    • righting a wrong/wronging a right
    • etc

THEMES

Tagging eg.: dinosaurs, 1872, 1980s, [occupations], Fantasy, Comedy, Lesbian interest, Arthurian legend, the apparent paradox, Korea, Hitler, Love, Monsters, etc.

A great story INSIDE a not so great film

-2022

I was instantly reminded of Bladerunner, and I see many references to it in the images, the tone, the setting, the music – all without the facade of larger-than-life storytelling causing the dream state that makes Bladerunner iconic.

LOVELAND or EXPIRED (a bad title, because it is neither fully correct nor a genuine mis-lead) consists of the grit of reality, even if a bit into the future – not social realism, just the unwavering loss of hope, the emptiness of existence, in the big city or simply among other people. In this sense it is almost merciless – the only redemption that which is given freely from one human to another, posing as the singular meaning of life. And then even that is taken away. Maybe. Possibly, Unclear

I can’t really feel it. Wish I could.

The problem is not exactly the acting, or the lighting, or the directing. It’s the voice-over, or rather the dramatic necessity of the voice-over. However similar to the 1st theatrical version of Bladerunner, which worked to ease the audience into what was seen as a dark story, to lighten the mood in the tone of snub-nosed detectives of the 1930s – but LOVELAND without the voice-over would simply not work. There would be no heart, because that text causes our lead to be human – except that the voice-over monologue describes a character COMPLETELY different from the one of the lead – as the filmed lead never says or hints at brain activity at a level of poetry approaching that of the voice-over. Unfortunately and incredible.

I do however love the theme. How a person can literally adapt to a life without feeling, because their hormonal cause of deep emotion is taken from them, and then – if attraction causes them to produce these hormones again – begin to die. But even if the TAKE on the old story of the price of falling in love is actually quite good, it overstays its welcome – as if the director does not trust his audience with the material. Yet another script treatment – possibly to integrate the voice-over – would have made it a greater story and possibly a GREAT film.

And what happened to Hugo Weaving? That was abuse of an interesting role as well as actor. Nasty to just turn a good actor into function. And worse if it happens in the cutting room.

I would love to give it a 10.

But I have to give it 6.4. And if I think more about it, that grade will drop further. But it IS a good story – inside all of the noise, the pretentiousness, the director’s fear, the length without real payoff, as I am left to imagine what kind of film it COULD HAVE BEEN.

Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (SLAPPs)

– journalister får mundkurv på

Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (SLAPPs) are increasing across Europe, abusing laws to silence journalists and other public watchdogs, threatening free speech and your right to know.
Read The Coalition Against SLAPPs in Europe (CASE)’s latest report on over 500 SLAPP cases from 29 countries across Europe.

Since 2019 CASE has been working with Amsterdam Law Clinics, part of the Law Faculty at the University of Amsterdam (UvA), to catalogue and analyse SLAPP cases from across Europe. Thanks to input from organisations across the CASE coalition, we have collected together 570 cases over a 10 year period. On the basis of this data, we have identified a number of clear trends. In particular, we have found that the number of SLAPP cases across Europe has been increasing year on year, with the highest number recorded in 2020, followed by 2021 and 2019:
