… I sense, I perceive therefore I know.
I don't know what exists beyond that, what remains when everything else vanishes, when there is nothing left to perceive, or when there is nothing left to experience at all.
My work relates to sense perception as a method of explaining the world. For it is only through the senses that we can experience the world.
The resulting research project "Borderline", attempts to uncover different ways to make the unknown space of nothingness experienceable through sensory reduction or overstimulation.
‘Borderline‘ is a research project that seeks to explore different ways to experience this unknown space of nothingness.
A concept was developed that situates the experience of nothingness not in its opposite extreme of perception, but in the brief moment when we cross the border from one perception to the other. This allows us to have the experience of nothingness, which occurs in a brief moment when we cross the boundary of our perception. This theory led to the development of various mirror projects that represent the respective partial aspects of nothingness
1 - We dissolve by exploring the border
2 - We become one with the mirror by breaking the borderline
3 - We overstimulate to the peak to fall into nothingness
4 - We dissolve in taste to end up in nothing
But as soon as we attempt to hold onto or strive for these experiences, we lose them. Nothingness remains a fleeting experience that eludes closer examination. It is devoted to the moment and is determined on our ability to cross borders.
