"Virtual Immortality"

August 30, 2017

 

 

“The utopia of the technological order is virtual immortality, hitherto only ascribed to the gods, to the divinity. Now, we have a new pantheon. The computer sits in the middle of it. The computer, not being a sign, is the most powerful instrument in the world in that it produces what it signifies: it produces this globalisation. In that sense, it is the highest magic in the world, and something that we’re all in adoration of. And that’s what these films (‘Koyaanisqatsi,’ ‘Powaqqatsi’ and ‘Naqoyqatsi’) are about.” – Director Godfrey Reggio

 

“Koyaanisqatsi” is filmed in the Northern Hemisphere. “Powaqqatsi” shows the Southern Hemisphere.

 

Where does Portugal lie?

 

Where does Portugal want to lie?

Read my novel, Turn On, Tune Out, which is set in the future when computers are held in awe.
