SURFACE SUSPENSION inside AN EMPTY ROOM under A SENSE OF EMERGENCY AFTER TOUCHING GROUND and BOUNCING BETWEEN POLES when ENGINE RENDERS THE LIGHT.

SURFACE SUSPENSION

These words do not exist and these worlds do not exist. They are all but physical. So by declaring them to be false we are ascribing a false nature to the third person perception that we understand by the words "witness" and "illuminated". The words "Witness" and "Illuminated" are relative, not absolute. They are relative to the third person perspective. The words "Witness" and "Illuminated" are relative to the human world where the sense of causality is stronger and lasts longer.

AN EMPTY ROOM

In that space without object where everything imaginable is contained, on the forty-second day of April during the spring twilight, when the flame dusted the snow-proud slopes, the main lights in the ridges all blazed across the two peaks. Number slept until midnight and then it must have looked up and had the startling thought that there was no need to wait for the sun.

A SENSE OF EMERGENCY

The act of reducing or the state of being reduced , as contrasted with the idea of intensity, implies two things. It signifies a reduction of something into its opposite—a breaking, or separation, in the substance, or thing, which is in process of being reduced to that thing's opposite, or that thing's opposite into its substance. And it signifies a real lowering of the one which is from a higher to a lower level, and an actual pulling away from the higher or the superior, a reduction and the removal of that which is the more superior or better from the inferior. This action of a force is not without effect. Although it causes nothing to happen, the force, which has been exerted, affects the character of the thing which has been attacked.

AFTER TOUCHING GROUND

While being on surface, Surface might seem to be far less discernible than formerly predicted. A sudden intuition helps accept Surface as for what it really is. Then Number adds some sense of objectivity and a mirage forms in the horizon, yet ground and Surface still keep forming a unity that seems to be solid enough to provide a feeling of consistency.

BOUNCING BETWEEN POLES

Lets imagine a continuum of ideas, prototypes and reconsiderations in a spontaneous, perpetual self inquiry, where by default interrogation is generative and simultaneously deceptive. Or lets think about ourselves engaged in that particular state of beingness, between materiality and immateriality while at the same time still seems to exist a certain notion of acceptance. Certainty, a wish expecting an unbiased confirmation to be delivered. A question then arises which can not be codified.


ENGINE RENDERS THE LIGHT



Engine says:

“the observable universe can be thought of as a sphered diamond with energy emanating from its core –a seeming paradox given the collapse of the heart”.

Engineers are baffled.

ABOUT THE WINDOW

My spectral name in the internet is Basik Kubasik. I am currently based nowhere really (or at least not that I know), and since as long as I can remember I have been consistently trying to open windows. I mostly dream in the laboratory and under the open sky, where in both I enjoy a constant and seemingly purposeless adventure.

Between 1994 and 2015 I used to show the result of my work in events and venues such as:

And/Or Gallery Los Angeles, Arsenal Berlin, Transitio Mexico, Bienal de la Habana, Art London, DAM Gallery Frankfurt-Berlin, Art Taipei, Hartware Dortmund, La Laboral Centro de Arte Contemporaneo, Ars Electronica, Arsenal Berlin, ICCI Tokyo, Arco Madrid, Sonar Barcelona, Centre Pompidou Paris, Next Five Minutes Amsterdam, Read-Me Moscow, Digital is not Analog Bologna, Moscow Biennial, ISSEA, The Influencers Barcelona, The Whitney Biennial New York, Transmediale Berlin, Seoul Contemporary Art Bienial. ETC.

These days I am still showing and sharing the result of my research but that is not a priority anymore, if it ever was before, if you know what I mean. For old adventures and projects and almost very raw research materials you are very welcome to go:
