Multiverse is an ongoing project, exploring the physical quantum theory, which is the hypothetical set of infinite possible universes including our own. All individual thinking and believe-systems do form a collective, human “thinking multiverse”
“Thoughts, inseparable from “feelings” materialize into “something”. With outcomes clashing today more often in convictions, that challenge dramatically our socio-political and ecological landscape at a collective and individual level of existence. Technology and mechanization continues to speed up, and tends rather to fragment and dissociate, while it still celebrates the old-fashioned, seductive dream of artificial progress for more time and happiness. The resulting fact is an over-stimulated population bombarded with a cacophony of images and messages and less time. Naturally it changes the way how we think, feel and act and interact. However robotics and constant consuming cannot replace the need for space of contemplation and a direct, natural connection, a primal urge unchanged since stone-age. Humans needs an emphatic view on the fragility of human condition and a consciousness, where the “materialisations of the mind” are the origin- source of conflicts or solutions for the future of life on earth.
I use straight forward and multi exposed photographs from my archive and new photographs, which are contrasting photoculptures of portraits, some conflated with nature and architecture. The handcrafted holographic-like sculptures seem to dematerialize photography and eludicate the boundaries between surface and volume. Each one tells a story and changes depending on the viewer’s standpoint and lights, which can cast shadows. This project attempts also to create a dialog about the boundaries of possible conceptions in photography, perception and consciousness. Envisioned is to expand this series into an installation contrasting sculptures and images in materiality, as well in scale of representation similar to cosmic constellations.
