Azimut

1985, 7:02 min, color, sound

Produced in conjunction with a 1985 media arts event in Amsterdam entitled Talking Back to the Media, Azimut is a tightly structured work in which images of the body, inscribed with technology and communications, become a mesmerizing invocation. Accompanied by a hypnotic, repetitive soundtrack, a looped film fragment of a revolving satellite dish is superimposed onto the face and torso of the artist, who is also seen wearing earphones and shielding his face with his hands. The astronomical coordinate of the title — the azimuthal angle — holds a satellite on course. Fidel Castro, in Spanish, proclaims, "The revolution will not be exported, the revolution will not be stopped."
