Tulips & Roses is happy to invite you to the opening of Done, an exhibition exploring fatal holography by Raimundas Malašauskas.
Try to imagine a space where all possibilities coexist.
It's hard, isn't it?
The very idea of space (be it the space of a sentence or a room) already seems to exclude something, or maybe impose a certain order and sequence on things.
A space where all possibilities coexist - isn't it almost a religious idea?
Yes, but we can also look at it from a completely different angle. There is a theory that even the most abstract ideas (time, spirit, thought, infinity) are in fact spatial metaphors. The only way to conceptualize these ideas is by imagining them as something having extension and shape - hence, owning the same essential characteristics as objects, animals and plants.
If this is true, then the idea of the immaterial might share a significant number of qualities with a bottle of perfume, the coexisting totality of possibilities might resemble a postcard and the very process of thought can suddenly look back at us.
("Hey, this sounds familiar!")
But this is something we were thinking about well before someone broke the glass and the liquid overflowed the room, before the main protagonist went out of focus, before we accidentally shared a face, before we realized that even the scriptwriter was dyslexic, before dancers happily changed places with philosophers and before we realized that animals have better thoughts than museums. Polyphonic thoughts, thicker than the mixture of a Persian carpet and a song.
And then, obviously, the idea of the hologram took shape.
("Wait, before or after?", "Depends if you start with the W or with the R!", "Can someone in the room please give a relevant example?", "It might be the so called "Chameleon's tongue")
