Djivan Gasparyan & Erkan Ogur - 2001 - Fuad

Before the heart, there was time. Then the miracle occured. The heart came into being. With the command, the beat began. The first blow and the substance shakes with “Fuad” the inital moment of life where movement is born.
“Fuad” is power, sound and rhthym. The heart begins life zealously, beating fast… Speeds up, slows down ; gets high, gets down. Desire, fear, love, joy, sorrow, music,ecstacy, shock, fatigue, attack, disease, halt and restart.

Then a signal to the substance, and comes the moment of ceascing… “”Fuad””. From the minute infinity to the magnanimous one, from nothing to being, “Fuad” commences the universe. There, neither the first nor the last can be defined. Absolute being is the sole reality. Before the heart, the moment of the heart, after the heart; this is the question. There are moments when the heart is broken, that’s the instance that break “Fuad”. The happiest moment of the heart is “Fuad”. It sees, hears, touches, tastes, smells, loves, discerns, feels with “Fuad”. And we think with “Fuad”.

The talent we have and the talents we can never discover are “Fuad”. Logic is formed at the heart, and might be cruel or loving as granted. “Fuad” is in the service of matter, whether human or not, known or unknown, and whether will be discovered, be it living or non-living. Yearning for “Fuad” is a gift to the dreams of humanity.
