The 16th IFF “Arsenals” (2000)

GRAND PRIX – THE MAGIC CRYSTAL

We have been travelling around for a long time watching glass blowers, who were trying to create the crystal – in Russia, Latvia and in Switzerland. We were unsuccessful. We became tired of ourselves and of each other, so we turned to the wine glass. At that moment, someone picked up a metal pipe that was lying somewhere around and took a look at it. And this metal rusty pipe turned out to be the Magic crystal we had been searching for. And when someone asks us where it is, we answer – have a look through the pipe – your eye is the CRYSTAL. The pipe is one Eisen in length. Eisen (from Sergey Eisenstein) is a measure of genius, a materialised standard of talent. It cannot be smaller. To even exist.
