Multiverse

Multiverse is an ongoing project that explores the hypothetical multiple-universe theory. Here it is used as a metaphor for the space in which individual thinking and belief systems form a collective ‘Thinking Multiverse’.

Thoughts and feelings are like inseparable twins, which “materialize” into facts with consequences. They can uplift or clash with ruling convictions and challenge the current global socio-political and ecological landscape, at both a collective and individual level. As wonderful as technological innovation is, and a one-sided focus on technology, mechanization and media manipulations can speed up the race towards an increasingly unnatural, performance-oriented culture, that bears the danger of damaging health, common sense and much more.

The old seductive dream , that “only” artificial progress can provide more time and happiness, remains unbroken. One of the results is an over-stimulated population, constantly bombarded with a cacophony of messages, images and tasks. 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 or dreaming. Being in more balanced contact with nature always provides energy and exposure to timeless wisdom. Of course this also includes the important quality time of direct human and animal interaction.

Multiverse investigates the fragility of the human condition with its “materializations” of minds that hint at the original source of conflicts, and are simultaneously also the architecture of sustainable solutions for life on earth. Here, photographic hybrids 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 and “dematerialize” photography to sound out with 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.
