Somebody is sending some massage but we can't see him and probably we can't understand what he is saying because he is using a Morse code. The Morse code is an old-fashioned and basic way of communication and is related with some particular historical issues as well as with some extreme communication circumstances. To emit a signal always imply a receiver, when the receiver is absent there's not communication and as a consequence the sender is just emitting signals to the empty space, to the ether, then his situation could develop into desperation and isolation.
RED WAVES present the spectator as the receiver and also as the sender but in both cases he couldn't understand what is really happening.

Spass Muss Sein!
March 2005 I traveled around in Germany, in the neigbourhood of Karslruhe. Driving by car, visiting cities as Frankfurt and Köln on your way back home, Brussels. At some stops (Raststätte), you look around, take some fresh air and then again back driving further. Traveling by car, is like looking constantly to a movie. The exception here, is that you are the director and that you can change the story whenever you want. Spaß muß sein! Is a common expression in Germany someone told me. As tourist you are always all ear to habits and expressions people have in the country you¹re traveling in. It sounds nice and at the same time oppressive. You have to enjoy! It sounds also like you¹re in a club and the animator is trying to enjoy the daily tourists. All they want is that you feel comfortable. As the messages when you¹re traveling by train: en vous souhaitant un agréable voyagewir wunschen Ihnen eine angenehme Reise...we wish you a good trip...we wensen jullie een aangename reis... The accident is the only factor which can disturb this harmony.

T.C.D.D. Turkish State Railways Recreation Camp It was for railways workers and their families to come and swim Now it is a tired place with a fancy entrance where nobody swims Since 6 years the camp has been divided 160 Chechen refugees live in one third of it Most of them are from Grozny and have no official ID A black force is boring the void
Military Zone is green and forbidden for civilians The houses of the generals take always the best locations of the cities They must be invisible for the maps where the city of Bursa replaces Istanbul Their must be safe presence greatly matters so they erase the others Meanwhile the officially absent black force keeps boring the void

Rosa Barba:It's gonna happen
It¹s gonna happen, 16mm, colour, optical sound, 3min, 2005
The Film is separated in two different narrations, one is played back from the optical sound track of the movie, where we listen to a fictional phonecall conversation of "a³ president and his collaborator, planing a coup for the same night. The images show synchronously a description -projected as a science fiction filmscript- of the city by night in which the phonecall takes place.
