On the angel of history


Click for : Quicktime version / Flash version

"A Klee painting named ‘Angelus Novus’ shows an angel looking as though he is about to move away from something he is fixedly contemplating. This is how one pictures the angel of history. His face is turned toward the past. But a storm is blowing in from Paradise; it has got caught in his wings so that the angel can no longer close them. This storm irresistibly propels him into the future to which his back is turned. This storm is what we call progress."

Greatly inspired by the amazing, clear new vision of direct objectivity, Sam Renseiw mashed-up some supplementing footage on the matter(s) of history, art and memory, for internal use only - View the humble homage by clicking here or enter the field of vision by hovering in above.

I always forget about that "internal use only" track...it seems to fit very well
