From the invitation:
"Yesterday... all my troubles are so far away.." it seems yesterday but the start up of this legendary group, The Beatles, was 50 years ago. Their music was the soundtrack of entire generations and even today we keep listening and enjoying evergreen melodies as "Yesterday", "Michelle" or "Let it be".

Based on an idea by Helenita Arriaga, Arte Libera is proud to invite you to celebrate this important anniversary with an artistic tribute to the mythic Fab Four by fab four Metaverse's artists : Giovanna Cerise, Solkide Auer, Daco Monday e Pol Jarvinen. In a two-step presentation, they show their installations inspired by Beatles' s songs, while Helenita enriches this journey with infos and curiosities."

Pol Jarvinen invited me today to have a sneak previev. He has chosen the song 'Because'. He gave me the link to his favourite version.

Because the world is round it turns me on
Because the world is round...aaaaaahhhhhh

Because the wind is high it blows my mind
Because the wind is high...aaaaaaaahhhh

Love is old, love is new
Love is all, love is you

Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue...aaaaaaahhhh

So, our talk was around love, tears and youth:

Quan Lavender: and because of love, the world cries blood tears?
Pol Jarvinen: yes it a great song; it makes me cry maybe blood tears
Quan Lavender: love or the song? ;)
Pol Jarvinen: ))both
Pol Jarvinen: i tried to illustrate the song very simply
Quan Lavender: I love the rainbow, it gives hope :)
Pol Jarvinen: love is all
Quan Lavender: ah no, overvalued or better said, it is our choice to love. If we do without expectations all is fine.
Pol Jarvinen: i mean love is universal...evrywhere even if hidden sometimes
Quan Lavender: the trouble comes with the addiction, greediness and expectations
Pol Jarvinen: people often dont dare to love
Quan Lavender: but what is the benefit of not daring? ok, you don't risk pain but for sure you miss fun
Pol Jarvinen: some are very shy
Quan Lavender: that is stupid, especially in our age
Pol Jarvinen: yes i agree
Quan Lavender: but your work reminds to our youth and there we often do not dare and are too shy
Pol Jarvinen: beatles are our youth
Pol Jarvinen: maybe youngers wont understand it
Quan Lavender: yes, because maybe they don't sat with friends in front of the disc player with all the hopes and wishes
Pol Jarvinen: and we listened disk till they were in a bad state.  I put a sign on the disk recorder for the young fellows

Quan Lavender: hahaha
Pol Jarvinen: The Beatles are part of our life. I was really moved when Lennon died
Quan Lavender: I hated Yoko Ono at this time
Pol Jarvinen: yes we all did
Quan Lavender: I think the people will love your installation
Pol Jarvinen: old people? haha
Quan Lavender: would you mind, if I take a part of our dialogue for a blog post?  I think most are in our age and would find it funny
Pol Jarvinen: no problem
Quan Lavender: Not that you pretend you are 30 when you meet a girl :P. Then I ruin your image.
Pol Jarvinen: haha, I never pretended that
Quan Lavender: No need, just women get old. Men are even more interesting
Pol Jarvinen: its an interesting quote  ))
Quan Lavender: We say that in Germany. It's meant ironic.
Pol Jarvinen: nice
Quan Lavender: NICE???
