Text: Nikoloz Baratashvili

Synopsis: 

The azure blue,the heavenly hue,


The first created realm of blue;

And over its radiance divine


My soul does pour its love sublime.



My heart that once with joy did glow


Is plunged in sorrow and in woe,


But yet it thrills and loves anew


To view again the sapphire blue.


I love to gaze on lovely eyes


That swim in azure from the skies;


The heavens lend this color fair,


Arid leave a dream of gladness there.



Enamored of the limpid sky,


My thoughts take wing to regions high,


And in that blue of liquid fire


In raptured ecstasy expire.



When I am dead no tears will flow

Upon my lonely grave below,


But from above the aerial blue


Will scatter over me tears of dew.



The mists about my tomb will wind


A veil of pearl with shadows twined;


But lured by sunbeams from on high


‘Twill melt into the azure sky.

World like a chain, a video by Irina Gabiani 2014

A video by: Irina Gabiani

Voice: Irina Gabiani

Editing: David Gabriel

Text: Clifford Simak

Synopsis:

  • One world and then another, running like a chain. One world treading on the heels of another world that plodded just ahead. One world’s tomorrow, another world’s today. And yesterday is tomorrow, and tomorrow is the past. Except, there wasn’t any past. No past, that was, except the figment of remembrance that flitted like a night-winged thing in the shadow of one’s mind. No past that one could reach. No pictures painted on the wall of time. No film that one could run backwards and see what-once-had-been… One road was open, but another road was closed. Not closed, of course, for it had never been. For there wasn’t any past, there never had been any, there wasn’t room for one. Where there should have been a past there was another world.

Seashore of endless worlds, a video by Irina Gabiani 2014

Picture 7

Frame from the video “Seashore of endless worlds”, 2014 ©

A video by: Irina Gabiani

Voice: Nicole Adorno

Editing: David Gabriel

Text by: Rabindranath Tagore 

Synopsis:

On the seashore of endless worlds children meet.

The infinite sky is motionless overhead and the restless water is boisterous. On the seashore of endless worlds the children meet with shouts and dances.

They build their houses with sand, and they play with empty shells. With withered leaves they weave their boats and smilingly float them on the vast deep. Children have their play on the seashore of worlds.

They know not how to swim, they know not how to cast nets. Pearl-fishers dive for pearls, merchants sail in their ships, while children gather pebbles and scatter them again. They seek not for hidden treasures, they know not how to cast nets.

The sea surges up with laughter, and pale gleams the smile of the sea-beach. Death-dealing waves sing meaningless ballads to the children, even like a mother while rocking her baby’s cradle. The sea plays with children, and pale gleams the smile of the sea-beach.

On the seashore of endless worlds children meet. Tempest roams in the pathless sky, ships are wrecked in the trackless water, death is abroad and children play. On the seashore of endless worlds is the great meeting of children.

Voice: Ivan Adorno

Text: Kabir

Synopsis:

Having crossed the river,
where will you go, O friend?
There’s no road to tread,
No traveler ahead,
Neither a beginning, nor an end.
There’s no water, no boat, no boatman, no cord;
No earth is there, no sky, no time, no bank, no ford.
You have forgotten the Self within,
Your search in the void will be in vain;
In a moment the life will ebb
And in this body you won’t remain.
Be ever conscious of this, O friend,
You’ve to immerse within your Self;
Kabir says, salvation you won’t then need,
For what you are, you would be indeed.

Actors: Nicole Adorno

Editing: David Gabriel

Texst: Albert Einstein

 

Synopsis 

The video by Irina Gabiani « Part of whole » is accompanied by text of Albert Einstein :

“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe’ —a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feelings, as something separated from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

Text: Rumi

Synopsis:

In the video Irina Gabiani uses the poem of Rumi, which reads as follows:

The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you
Don’t go back to sleep!
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep!
People are going back and forth
across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,
The door is round and open
Don’t go back to sleep!
