Cloud of Unknowing
This project deals with (my) perception of existence and that which is accepted as ‘real’. It is an observation on what we take to be true in relation to the existence of others and how we may act on this in altruistic ways without personal experience of the actuality of these others.
It touches on Descartes’ ideas around the body and mind as separate and, put in extension, my presumption of these traits in others as well as my questions around whether or not we can connect in a purely mindly manner. It looks at the ‘weight’ of individual existence in relation to the subjective self and examines our inter-connectivity on a historical and global scale.
It is, ultimately, a celebration of being human.
The indivisible soul, a metaphysical potential utilizing physical signs and signifiers to point towards itself, make itself known and coming to recognize others of its ilk. Consciousness, transcending the limitations of a material world to connect in this existence of turmoil.
(L. Dimitrievski, 2020)
