||It is an
everlasting paradox. Curiosity makes that we want to see around
corners, because we are fond of every breathtaking view. But the
need for safety, reflected in the fears, obstruct seeing. It is in
the eye we meet and are able, if only for one second, to fuse into a
Space Odyssey. We travel through Black Holes (watch out.. they are
shooting at us!), beyond the Soul and the Shadows into the ink black
sea of the unconscious - waiting for the Omega. To realise in the
end that it all was just Science Fiction (about knights and
heroes...). I do not mind. On this journey, far away from home, the
stories of fear and hope we tell each other make sure that we find
the courage to face the future.
Package SpaceTimes covers an inquiry into reflection and diffusion
through philosophy and photography by posing the question what we
mean by 'reality'. The
will be related to the quest for self knowledge as it has been
investigated in package House (Shelter Holiday 1998) and package
Backpack (Broken Cosmos 2013-15) and subsequently extrapolated to
the notion of 'unknown knowledge'.
In an everlasting flux we are continuously defined by the universe,
the world we live in, ourselves and others. Hence, we will fail to
see the richness and complexity of everything the moment we want to
define or describe ourselves in a conclusive way. There will always
be something we miss. In this sense, we are conclusively incomplete
and subject to a continuous re-contextualisation and interpretation.
It appears to be that our inner world and the outer world we live in
influence each other in a reciprocal poetic resonance. If this is
true, it raises the question to what extent we actually create our
own reality and how much is enforced upon us.
