Abstrakt

Niniejszy artykuł ukazuje zjawisko "intensywnego patrzenia" (encouraged gazing) w filmie Alvina Yapana An Kubo sa Kawayanan („Chata w bambusowym gaju”) (2015) jako potencjalne ćwiczenie w oddawaniu czci rzeczom, prowadzące do zrozumienia widzenia jako formy materialnego spotkania z rzeczami, wykraczającego poza ich zwykłe uprzedmiotowienie. Autor argumentuje, że zmysł wzroku jest ludzką zdolnością telepatyczną, to znaczy odległym (tele) odczuwaniem (pathein) z rzeczami i dla rzeczy, pomimo i z powodu ich nieokreślonej materialności. Przyglądając się bliżej retorycznym negocjacjom pomiędzy filmem Yapana a jego widzami i krytykami, autor zauważa, że tak rozumiana telepatia może być traktowana jako zachwyt nad rzeczami, w którym człowiek współodczuwa ich witalność. Jest to jednocześnie konsekwencja aktywnego praktykowania uważności wobec przedmiotów i innych form nieożywionych, które realizują swoje własne życiowe siły w tej samej ekologii, bez względu na to jak niezauważalne się wydają.
