Thank you Anya Harrison for including Alexandru Chira in your review

Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings, "Something for the Boys," 2018, film still.

Alexandru Chira's “Package Poem IV – Study” (1971-1991) picked as one of the top works at FIAC 2018 by Blouinartinfo

"An art professor by day, Alexandru Chira (1947-2011) created esoteric drawings, plans and paintings outside of “working hours” that are a blend of the eccentric, magical and mystical, with a deep interest in engineering and utopianism. Determined to save his home village in Transylvania from the catastrophic effects of long-term drought, Chira developed a monumental piece of land art, a transmitter to bring down rain and rainbows to the earth. Works such as “Package Poem IV — Study,” form part of his four-decade-long project and esoteric vocabulary that give rise to a belief system and mode of being all its own."
