Project ZERO POINT



 
    The question: 'What is the nature of God?' is intrinsically bound up with the inquiry into our relationship with reality. While project Soul Space (2019) had been an investigation into the human psychological perspective, asking in what ways God could be manifest as a hidden travel advisor during the service or ceremony of various religious communities, a second project focusses on the spatial, geometrical perspective of the nature of God. As with Soul Space, the results will be shared in discussions, lectures, exhibitions and an artists’ book, in which the viewer is invited to contemplate a multilayered portrait of God.

Time and again the inquiry into the nature of God directs us to the basic human ability of pattern recognition on the basis of similar differences and different similarities. Firstly perceptual: ‘unguided’ we recognise patterns in the blots on a brick wall or a wallpaper (Leonardo da Vinci already pointed at this
  ability as a starting point for all art). Secondly, as an attempt to make human knowledge measurable through 'information'. At present, we slowly come to understand how true knowledge means insight.

Three series of Fine art pictureworks are produced within the scope of this inquiry into the nature of God. They invite the viewer to explore and contemplate the notion of spacetime as a dimension, in which meaning remains something unfinished, but in which 'measurability' is crucial for us. After all, when there is nothing to hold on to, we have to choose a point of departure from which we can (re)organise our lives in an attempt to understand who we 'really' are.

New publication and artists book ZERO POINT is in the making, visually playing with our ability of pattern recognition and combined with a thought experiment as a flash vision poem.
 


   

ZERO POINT investigates the nature of God from a spatial geometrical perspective.
The philosophical photo book questions our interactions with concepts such as scale, proportion and dimension in new pictureworks and a thought experiment. As a result, the publication offers the reader possibilities to compose and contemplate a personal zero point as a portrait of God.
 







Special editions


To finance publication ZERO POINT 3 special editions of pictureworks are offered. The pictureworks are also included in the book.
