exhibition "Amplitude of thought"
Luminescent and multimedia Installation and objects
The rescue parachute,
a multimedia room
installation and the multimedia video and sound installation „
1:20 Change the channel“
works are all thematically connected, the subject matter is
observation, questioning society and individuality. Thoughts are
written into words, they are spoken out loud and immediately
influence our impression of reality. An existentialistic view
and a playful interpretation of here and now, the future,
expectation or acceptance of what will evolve with society in
this rapid era.
elemental part of the installations are the simple paper figures,
full of physical expression named „the Beer People“ Each one is
an original, folded and torn to form, made out of one single „tropfenfänger“.
Incorperated into these works they symbolize a positive and
individualistic society, searching for new solutions, asking
questions, propagating the importance of the moment,
individuality and freedom of thought.
Integrated in these works are messages and
statements in German and English, excerpts of song lyrics and
texts from Dolores Flores guiding the viewer through the subject
matter in a contemplative and amusing way.
As personal will to life individualism is a
desire to „be oneself“, a desire for independence and
originality. The individualist wants to be his or her own maker,
his own furnisher of truth or illusion : his own builder of
truth and illusion : his own builder of dreams: his own builder
and demolisher of ideals. This wish for originality can,
incidentally, be more or less energetic, more or less demanding,
more or less ambitious. More or less happy, too, according to
the value of the individuality in cause, according to the
amplitude of thought and according to the intensity of, the will
to, the individual might.
