If I think of light I think of the volatility of the moment and supposed truth we believe to identify. Light and consciousness are the two ingredients we need to identify an object visually. The visual idea is in my eyes only one truth of an object. If you try to ‘see’ it in different manners you will also see different truths in it.
I want to analyse my fascination for certain glass object. So I grind them and make prints from their rim. I repeat this procedure until the glass piece is gone completely. Only the prints are left. By digitalizing these prints I can make an animation, which resembles a journey through a glass piece.
I realised that each print resembles a ‘certain kind of truth’ of the glass piece, but not the whole truth. Only all prints together give a more complex idea of how the glass piece is built up and we can try to understand how the glass piece might have looked like.
The passing layers of grinding a glass object whose original format is decipherable, still means the objective end of this object.
Is this work questioning- in abstraction and concretization- the processual truth, taking place in the painstaking truth of deconstruction and reconstruction of grinding an object, or is it about the effort of Vanitas?
They report about the wounds the object, we and I suffer from, and how the healing corresponds to it.
The cure is contemplation, also considering the "origin" of the objects. All prints together do not emancipate themselves from the original object, they refer in their staggering on its destruction.
Contrastingly each single print stands naked and bare, but still refers to his original anatomy.
