And then He ask: – What is left between our dreams and our daily life reality?
VOID, I’m afraid, void – I replied –
This piece attempt to perceive the experience of the void as a metaphorical interpretation of both: the philosophical concept of nothingness manifested, and the absence of the digital infoxication now are living in.
With a subtle minimalistic approach, the aim is to create a work in which a fascination with the clarity of content and an uncompromising attitude towards conceptual and minimal digital art can be found. The work is aloof and systematic using a neutral imagery.
The notion of the Void is relevant to several realms of metaphysics and that’s why I question the conditions of appearance of an image in the context of contemporary audio-visual culture; representations and ideas. By applying this abstraction, I want to create an intense personal moment created by means of rules and omissions, “as a nirvana metaphor of our conciseness” acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and around in circles.
The Void is also prevalent in numerous facets of psychology, mostly in logo-therapy, which is founded upon the belief that it is the striving to find a meaning in one’s life that is the primary, most powerful motivating and driving force on humans.
A journey of self-reflection in a two-way installation where the senses can connect each other through technology to construct new interesting elements on the participant. The installation becomes a space to experiment with the overlapping physical and electronic realities and try to connect video, coding and the geography of space to create a practical experience and an observational piece within the use of this philosophical metaphor to understand a viewing of something metaphysical, or psychological act towards a perceptual understanding complete with physical experience.
A space where the viewer might become able to make his own conclusions through this multimedia piece, putting him in a position of an active scrutinizer.
