Anton Vidokle and Pelin Tan’s 2084 is an ongoing exploration of the history of the future, translated into films. In Episode 3, filmed last Summer in Cappadokia, Turkey, Vidokle and Tan refer to the circle of ideas of Cosmo-Immortalism, a vitalist philosophical movement of early twentieth century, which strongly influenced Russian revolution. Script for the film is a collage of texts by and about important scientists: Vladimir Vernadsky – one of the most ardent partisans of the idea of the “noosphere”, and Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, the father of Russian space exploration.
