Ad fractal infinitum
Empty Spaces I Project,
01. until 08.11.2020,
Ad fractal infinitum is a photography project that was made to portray an imagine of a fictional cosmos image.
We are so much used nowadays to see rendered panoramic pictures of our galaxy. We grasp through the symbols and depictions that this is how the galaxy looks like although we cannot see with our own eyes the whole picture of the galaxy. A picture of the our galaxy can also not be yet taken with the help of technology because we are yet to travel so far to be able to catch a full view of the Milky way or other galaxies.
Our brain makes associations when our eyes see pictures of the cosmos with the fact that we see the stars on the sky as well. By thinking that something is very big we cannot understand fully what that thing is, in this case the galaxy.
In his lecture, Nassim Haramein presented the theory of the vacuum, by saying: “If something can expand to infinity, it can also refract to infinity” therefore the understanding of very big and very small things is the same. We cannot see it, so we can only calculate and deduce scale in extreme examples. If a machine would be let to calculate sizes either very big or very small it will take this machine an infinite amount of time to conclude this calculation.
Very early on, human eyes will not be able to differentiate in between small and big and all we would
be able to see, through a computer zooming in or out, would be added fractals that repeat themselves. Therefore this project is questioning the perception and understanding of our surroundings. When the elements composing the surroundings are taken out of context how much our interpretation and experience will fill in the gaps in order to make sense of an image?
The decision to use organic materials like fruit, milk and oils is made in order to give a visual interpretation of the universe inside every person but also to suggest how everything is connected in understand- ing that the universe is constantly transforming itself and its components as well as humans transform themselves and what is inside them.
Each of the works encompasses two instances of the same arrangement, slightly transformed in order to suggest a movement of transformation that is continuously happening even though the surface remains the same.
