Ionize Ionize !

This speculative and fictional video essay was shot in a scintillation detectors factory in the Netherlands. Scintillators are translucent materials that emit light when struck by different types of invisible particles, such as electrons, gamma or X-rays. These radiation detectors are used in various domains, for example in airport scanners, in medical imaging and at CERN. The work takes as its starting point the unique properties of these materials, which reveal phenomena otherwise invisible to our senses, and freely associates them with a series of speculative, utopian and futuristic considerations about the destination of humanity.
