– Microcinema Vignette with Poster by J Marquez-Simanca –
Triumphus is part five of thirty-six vignettes in a larger holon project called Mea Hermetica. Each vignette — composed of metered verse, motion graphics and soundtrack — is marked by an archetypal vertex or Arista — a consciousness agent representing an interior and exterior, perspectival interactive experience. Fundamentally geometric, Aristas use a rhythmic language to shape themselves, and have direct correspondences to Western Esoterica. Mea Hermetica overall, is a contemplation on consciousness; it can be applied as a literary, introspective, or even a divinatory apparatus.
