Doktor Ovakozminski

Clark Nikolai

1991, 14:20 minutes, colour


Doktor Ovakozminsky lives alone in his small apartment "channeling" symbols from beyond. While immersed in his activity, he discovers a few more clues as to the source of these symbols and the secret that links the Bessborough Hotel and a cup of coffee to a mysterious creature that is not of this world.

Artist's Statement: 
Having met a few suburban "channellers", I thought it would be interesting to explore the concept of ideas and messages coming from other dimension/souls/worlds et cetera. The time when "everything happens for a reason" is very powerful.
