#micro & #macro and d world in between
I totally like d whole process in this work. Since d beginning of d idea, d approach to d idea, d finesse that he use and all details. The idea a form to be broken down into its parts and re-create is perfect. Artist goes from one level of macro world where using a microscope is trying to portray d minimalistic perspective of d world we live in and that the nubs are d content that it takes one thing to exist like whole and vice versa we have d miniaturism of our civilization as our property, and the whole world that surrounds us, which he captures in the second half of his work – the telescope.
The wall between is like bridge, is like d mind that is trying to observe d duality of d world in which we exist. He counts all of d pieces and make from them d whole structure of this installation. It’s kind of philosophy and architecture in one, but expressed trough d prism of art. In one clean, gentle way he shows d connection between this two worlds the one that is inside Us and the other one that like open sky wait for our eyes to be realized.
In d video we can see d love that he put into his process, all d steps that he is passing trough nut also d final result that is stunning in that new pure clean minimalistic way of expressing d concept. We have three elements [macro, wall, micro] presented in a beautiful way that brings Us in a state of peace and joy of d energy that the masterpiece produce by himself.
