LIGHT MATTER MIND II

deconstruction chamber : superposition


immersive sculptural setting, 2023
inspired by the Agential Realism of Karen Barad
-quantum physicist, feminist, philosopher-

Sculptural and three-dimensional graphic elements made of wood, metal, glass, nylon string and tape are suspended from the ceiling. They are arranged in such a way as to allow the potential of the materials to unfold in a spatial interplay initiated by light. When the light sources are directed in an intentional manner onto the object installation, the concrete material characteristics dissolve and fluid, random compositions of lucid reflections appear. The lines and internal structures create both strikingly clear and complexly diffuse drawings, extending and superimposing across the ceiling and walls. The deep black, richly reflecting material surfaces create a technoid-mystical atmosphere. The lightness and mobility of the reflective materials transform the room into an optical floating environment, with strong black and white contrasts determining the dynamic situation.

The visual transformation processes, controlled in real-time by the audience via light, oscillate between unambiguity with clear spatial presence and ambiguity through spatial deconstruction. They invoke Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, which states that when measuring at the quantum level, we can never capture all the data. There are always certain aspects that are lost when we focus in a particular way, and only one construct of reality can be clearly experienced at a time.
