Aula: Area of Universal Latency

 

CGI short film, 22 minutes

Area of Universal Latency (Aula) is a part of a large, interdependent system of specific places, rooted in the historical reality of northwestern Slovakia. The dominant feature of Aula is the House, some sort of author’s family memorial, once a romantic place, now abandoned ruin surrounded by a rotting apple orchard. The external human or natural uncoordinated interventions organically transform Aula and constantly “make it contemporary”. It lives in its special “post-human”, latent apocalyptic biosphere. The reality of constantly ongoing processes of birth and decomposition in Aula, means utopia. This is not a utopia in the sense of an impossible future, but a utopia as the present we live in. Through its ambivalence, CGI film Aula tries to point out to the current uncertainty of society.
