Sensorial perception, while allowing us to navigate through the world, tricks us into the illusion of an individualized, isolated state of being, erroneous and commonly accepted as a subjective reality. We cannot see our reflection in the mirror unless we are distant from it. When examining the most fundamental threads that weave the fabric of reality through quantum mechanics, there is no separation between the subject and the object, there is one unified phenomenon known as quantum entanglement.
Michel Serres depicts tissue, textile and fabric as excellent models of knowledge through perceptual experience. EJTECH investigates the interweaving of sound, space, time, and matter as textile structures, via textile instruments, where the spatiotemporal characteristics of the sound manifest as a material agency and are used as building blocks to create a space within a space, a dialogue between the inner and the outer self. Through multichannel compositions an ephemeral acoustic environment incarnates and encourages corporal hearing, this being active listening, not only through the ear canals but consciously perceiving sound with the body. The only way out is through.
All Direction Is Curved, All Motion Ss Spiral is a site specific installation that reshapes the gallery space by performative means of textiles, spirals, sound and light. Each room is a layer, an agency of mutual constitutions intra-acting. All sound is emitted by the textiles allowing matter to perform itself, unfolding unexplored spatial distances, meditating presence, articulating time, generating a new kind of awareness that reorganizes patterns of behaviour, thus defining a way of sensing and engaging with the environment that hangs at the threshold of consciousness and perception.
Via the sonorous-textile phenomena, by deliberately setting matter into controlled motion, sound wave constellations materialize in ever changing geometric paths inviting the visitor to passively act on the spiritual practice of experiencing reality in layers of emerging patterns.
Things made of smaller things.
