||It is an everlasting paradox. Curiosity makes that we want to see around corners, because we are fond of every breathtaking view. But the need for safety, reflected in the fears, obstruct seeing. It is in the eye we meet and are able, if only for one second, to fuse into a Space Odyssey.
We travel through Black Holes (watch out.. they are shooting at us!), beyond the Soul and the Shadows into the ink black sea of the unconscious - waiting for the Omega. To realise in the end that it all was just Science Fiction (about knights and heroes...).
I do not mind. On this journey, far away from home, the stories of fear and hope we tell each other make sure that we find the courage to face the future.
Package SpaceTimes covers an inquiry into reflection and diffusion through philosophy and photography by posing the question what we mean by 'reality'. The findings will be related to the quest for self knowledge
|| as it has been investigated in package House (Shelter Holiday 1998) and package Backpack (Broken Cosmos 2013-15) and subsequently extrapolated to the notion of 'unknown knowledge'.
In an everlasting flux we are continuously defined by the universe, the world we live in, ourselves and others. Hence, we will fail to see the richness and complexity of everything the moment we want to define or describe ourselves in a conclusive way. There will always be something we miss. In this sense, we are conclusively incomplete and subject to a continuous re-contextualisation and interpretation.
It appears to be that our inner world and the outer world we live in influence each other in a reciprocal poetic resonance. If this is true, it raises the question to what extent we actually create our own reality and how much is enforced upon us.
