“Sky. Invasion” 


This video work is intended to show the fragility of the sky and the fear of looking at it, inherent to people with traumatic experiences. The compilation of found footage presents the sky with the daily cycle: morning, afternoon, evening, night, morning. This is sky over Ukraine in various regions, before and during the Russian-Ukrainian war. The end of the video is the sun close up, similar to an explosion of a hydrogen bomb. The sound of the video is the Russian military frequency 4625. One can hear the voice of a man who speaks Russian  and calls numbers and names without any meaning. There is one version that frequency 4625 is part of the Perimeter nuclear complex. A complex for automatic control of a massive retaliatory nuclear strike, created in the USSR at the height of the Cold War and used by Russia.
