First level: In the face of the catastrophy, Walter Benjamin's angel has stormed, hurled and blown into the future. The first storm in history is over. Now a figure walking backwards wanders across the square - forever and in geometric patterns.
Second level: The practice of walking backwards seems to lead to a release of the body's own messenger substances, which increase retentiveness. A processiong non-purpose cognitive training.
All together: A speculative Anti-Alzheimer's-statement against ahistoricality and information society. A non-digital body practice for information processing. Open-ended.
Utopian hope. We'll work it out.
