4

April 10, 2008

There’s something about the number 4 i’ve always liked. Maybe it’s the idea that 2+2, 2×2, 2^2, all equate to the same thing, that it’s somehow magical. Maybe it’s the fact that a square, the 2nd most perfect shape in the universe has 4 sides. No matter what it is, 4 was the number i chose to present my work. 4 tv sets, square, stacked to display movements. movements of growth, of life, and eventually of death. And though that energy will always be around, lost in space and time, i want to capture it for as long as i can. cage it in the bracket of linear time. present it in a way that is observable, understandable. for once it leaves my 4 sets, it is no longer ‘perfect’, or magical. it becomes real.

cute* miracles* my attempt at capturing what cant be capture. life, time, space. magic is an illusion. amazing and astounding, but in the end, fake. miracles can never be seen or explain, life time space. wild, crazy, unmeasurable. is not ‘perfect’, not 4 not 2. more like a circle. no beginning, no end, the most perfect shape. unattainable. maybe a 1, no maybe 0. maybe even more perfect. perfection is perfect, but perfect cannot to capture. settle with ‘perfect’-in reality simply ‘cute’, the most perfect we can make, see. perfection is the whole. we are simply observing a portion of it. a square in the circle. our view at the universe.
