Multiverse

Sculptures & Photographs

Multiverse explores the hypothetical multiple-universe theory, as a metaphor for the space in which individual human “thinking and feeling is formed by prevailing belief systems” constructing a collective ‘Thinking Multiverse’.

Hinting at a fragile human condition with its “materializations of minds and feelings” which do form the original source of all conflicts, and are simultaneously also the architecture of solutions for a sustainable life on our planet. “Thoughts and feelings” are like inseparable twins, which “materialize” into “facts with consequences”. They can uplift or clash with the hierarchies of the ruling convictions, bringing challenges in the balance of the  global socio-political and ecological landscape, at both a collective and individual level.

The old, seductive dream, that “only” artificial progress can provide more time and happiness, remains fascinatingly unbroken. 

As practical and important technological innovation can be, a one-sided focus on a technocratic, digital mass-mechanizations with a ruthless minimum-investment-maximum-profit oriented mentality, including disturbing media manipulations, this all does speed up the race towards an increasingly unnatural, performance-oriented and even an inhuman culture, manifesting in long term damages in nature, physical and psychological health and simultaneously lowers human common sense.

Over-stimulation is not a new problem, by being constantly bombarded with a cacophony of messages, images, advertising and to many tasks to solve in to little time. Naturally, it changes the way we think, feel, act and interact. Overwhelming artificiality, stress and constant consuming cannot replace the primal need for a space of contemplation, dreaming and spiritual being with the time of direct human and animal interaction. Being in a more balanced physical contact with nature, always provides more energy, love and happiness, a timeless law of wisdom since Stone Age

This project intends with photographic hybrids to facilitate the dialogue about expanded possibilities of perception, thinking and feelings. The series comprises single- and multiple-exposure photographs, as well as handcrafted holographic-like 3-dimensional photo-sculptures, which collapse the boundary between photography and object by “dematerializing”the material surface and volume. Each transparent photo sculpture tells an individual story and, depending on the angle of view, changes its 3-dimensional perspective. With particular illumination, whether sunshine or spotlights, they cast shadows that expand them inside or beyond their frames.
