22 - KUNDALINI, Raya Mazigi (Lebanon)
Major esoteric religious traditions taught that one of the secrets to spiritual enlightenment is the use of a ritualized physical love practice, known as sexual alchemy. Often kept secret by fear of profanation or persecution, this teaching is explicitly integrated in the Jewish mystic tradition of Kabbala, and referred to in early Christian texts as the Sacrament of the Bridal Chamber, as HeQi in Taoism, and as Tantrism in Buddhism and Hinduism.

20 - REVELATION, C. M. Judge (USA)
Whether hidden or revealed, secrets cut to the core of our humanity.
Man: Noah Dawson
2013 was a time of mass protests against austerity and recession in Ireland, I found myself by chance traveling on a small secluded road behind the giant IKEA superstore in Dublin. Along the roadside, I observed all the discarded junk that was at one time precious, all the abandoned things that were once objects of desire. This is the concealed and hidden secret of IKEA's promise. The brief life span of our material lives. Our dreams turn to dust. Everything returns to the earth.
The “Vacuum of Milk” series presents the constant construction and deconstruction of a “white cube” at the hands of the artist. The cube, built out of empty milk cartons, alludes to artists’ and other cultural workers’ lack of basic resources. This series attempts to evoke that mysterious desire to disrupt institutional order; the ever-mute dizziness produced by the illusory fall of the “white cube”. When collapse is felt but remains unspoken, it repeats itself into delirium.

15 - THE HIDDEN GARDEN, Minoo Iranpour Mobarakeh (Iran)
The idea of this video has made through encountering me with Persian gardens and the way they were built. Persian garden is full of mysteries, full of ambiguity and covertness. This garden is one of the reasons of loving beauty in this world and a symbol of paradise which you can imagine resting under the shade of trees and flowers, and sit along its streams. This garden is surrounded by long walls and it`s not allowed to enter by everyone. This garden feels like a closed place and an image of the peripheral world and is understood through geometry, color, and substance. Those who are outside this garden are always encountered with many secrets and seek to find meaning for the mysteries of Persian garden, a meaning that is hidden even for the inhabitants of the garden. The signs and elements used in this video can create metaphorical communication with the Persian garden for the audience.
13 - SECRET, LIE AND DEATHS, Véronique Sapin (France)
In a February 2003 speech to the U.N. Security Council, Colin Powell alleged that Iraq was hiding weapons of mass destruction (thousands of litres of Anthrax). However, after the U.S. had invaded Iraq, no weapons of mass destruction were found.
In April 2017, the bolivian Ambassador to the United Nations, Sacha Llorenti,
reminded the council of the disastrous weapons of mass destruction lie peddled by the US as a pretext to invade Iraq : “After this invasion, there was 1 million deaths".

2 - HELLO WORLD, Alessandra Arno (Italy)
"Hello world" is the first computer code C message (previously suggested by Language B) that appears to the user on the programming screen.
The work uses the same convention but in morse code as a land-based message sent by the planet itself or its inhabitants.
Hello world is a welcome message of enthusiasm and awe-inspiring, which is aimed at the universe. The cosmos looks and repeats with a morse code message, referring to a s.o.s.
1 - TYPE YOUR SECRET, Maria D. Alba (Spain)
A videocollage showing the materialization of a secret. A language among women, a whisper, a letter that tells a story of the subconscious, sweat and throbbing, a social insect that flees, fluids that are diluted, a train that leaves after removing the secret to the light... a chain of actions that are linked like a television channel, that activate according to our mind and heart
