HEAVEN’S BLADE
33

While astrophysicist and mathematician Trillian Astra might feel cold and alone in the infinite void as she hurtles through the stars on a flagship of the blackest black in H2G2, it doesn’t have to be that way. Space is big, which means there’s plenty of room for revelry at the center of an intergalactic war, and Billy Bultheel and Alexander Iezzi are making the most of our own looming earthly calamities as 33. Their “Heaven’s Blade” track release—premiering as part of Creamcake’s 3hd 2022: “Life, the Universe, and Everything” via 3hdTV on October 24—is a hard techno dance anthem that is as combative as it is perversely cheerful. The track releases with a video work by the artists Margarita Maximova and Shade Theret, made in correspondence to the music by 33.


The video premiere is it’s own vanguard space vessel barrelling through an abyss of enormous adversity in global crisis, while building on Bultheel and Iezzi’s exploration of “queer weaponry” to announce their forthcoming “33 Unplugged” performance for 3hd’s “The Ultimate Question” event happening at Trauma Bar und Kino on Thursday, October 27. The “Heaven’s Blade” music video and the following event culminates in the drop of 33’s explosive 33-69 album debut via Berlin and Porto-based C.A.N.V.A.S. label. It’s a powerful noise, trance and gothic bootcamp that is as rowdy, violent, and mystical as its numerology-referencing, schoolboy humor-recalling title implies.

PERFECT LIVES
Agnieszka Polska

In her film, the Berlin-based artist reflects on a 1990 control experiment, which took place when the Galileo spacecraft was passing Earth on its way to Jupiter. In the experiment, scientists wanted to determine if data sent from Galileo will confirm the existence of life on Earth. The film is constructed as a dense, hypnotic essay, where dynamically edited multiple layers of stock footage and music composed in similarity to game music create a melancholic atmosphere. The material used to create this poetic collage is a collection of hundreds of short stock videos presenting various scenes from human life and covering a number of themes, such as: business meetings, enjoying nature, group therapy, marriage, loneliness, crime. These highly artificial and unlikely situations seem to question the very existence of life: they are the evidence for the western idea of life being an illusion.

THE MARTIAN WORD FOR WORLD IS MOTHER
Alice Bucknell

The London-based artist merges speculative fiction, 3D worldbuilding, artificial intelligence, and critiquing contemporary architectural proposals for the habitation of Mars, in this exploration of three Martian worlds with very different understandings of the Red Planet's future, and who gets to decide. Working with historical and contemporary science-fiction, Donna Haraway's theories on the nonhuman, and emergent space economies as its narrative backbone, the project underscores the limiting aspects of our language of space exploration that does not pivot towards human settlement as the necessary default, while exploring the political, ecological, economic, technological, and linguistic parameters framing contemporary discussions of Mars.
