As a bowl of water is juxtaposed to the book «Extrême: Esthétiques de la limite dépassée» by Paul Ardenne, it reacts powerfully. The water itself made the choice of this book arbitrarily. It is indeed a manifestation that is inconceivable by the standards of our intellectual conventions at the moment. In the photographs chosen for the exhibition, we notice a precise correlation between the visual content of the book, the artists’ intentions, the author’s text and that which emerges inside the water. Some objects are real items in my environment, like the lamp, the window and the book. But there were no dogs or images of dog around the bowl of water for the image above. See article Emerge Art and the Theory of Extra Dimensions.
It seems that for the most part art, science, politics and religion have become cynical and dissociated from the force that is responsible for our very life. We argue about what it could be. We are adamant we know the truth and are willing to kill for it. Even modern self-help gurus no longer guarantee the saving of our immortal soul but promise infinite material wealth as long as we keep our thoughts positive and our vision focused on the achievement of a unique goal.
