Chasing the Ineffable
Humans construct meaning based on experience. The sum of our experiences and feelings, in other words, the phenomenological understanding result in art as the metaphor that expresses an intangible part of existing. This room explores the notion of the ineffable, that which is incapable of being expressed in words, by looking at the intangible nature of existence. Elusive concepts such as emotion, trauma, light, darkness, addiction, memories and the realm of the subconscious mind seek to be visualized through 3D scans, sculptures, photographs, and video pieces. In this sense the work presented in this room is not attempting to decipher the mysteries of the world but to potentiate them through contemplation of the concrete forms through which they appear. Words are limited, experience is infinite. Here, the work is not used not to name but to suggest; a vehicle, rather than an answer to the unknown.
