Fluctuations VI, 2020

Spatial drawing, VHS magnetic tape, variable dimensions

 

The series references what is known in quantum physics as a quantum fluctuation – the temporary appearance of energetic particles out of empty space. It is a poetic reflection on the nature of nothingness – empty space and the multi-dimensional nature of reality, acknowledging the material as well as the immaterial. “Fluctuations VI” recurs to parametric modelling in order to deform a black square on the ceiling into a series of catenaries creating the same shape on frontal and side view. It is a metaphor of how everything contains both positive and negative aspects. The work oscillates between transparency and blackness and attempts to produce a cognitive dissonance in the viewer. It seeks a shift in perception to better navigate uncertainty by integrating subject–object, mind–body, masculine–feminine, order–chaos.
