BRIDGING SKY AND EARTH


Does the universe exist if we are not looking?

We had the old idea that “outside” is the universe and “here” are we people, the observers [...] .But today we realize that the universe is a universe of mutual participation, and so we have to simply replace the word “observers” with the new word “participants”.

– John Wheeler, american poineer of Quantum Physics


From quantum perspective the universe is an extremely interactive place.
What we observe is not nature itself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning.

– Werner Heisenberg

"It is speed which lights up the universe of perceptible and measurable phenomena. Light remains a unique revealer of sensible appearances."

Paul Virilio

"In the Light of Movement" shows that you create what you see. 8 people are allowed to enter the space at a time. They enter the dark room with a light connected to their forehead. In the middle they'll find through the reflection of their light – which is connected to their sight – a hexagonic parabolic mirror sculpture. The co-choreography deals with the relationship between the observer, the motion of the body and its relation to others in the surrounded space. In the 20th century Quantum Physics has shown that we live in a universe of mutual participation (Double-Slit Experiment). As the passive observer no longer exists, the viewer of the work gets a light connected to their forehead - placing her/him as into an experience as a co-choreograph of the work. Every movement is altering the space, remaining in a kaleidoscopic and fractured vision. Each viewer corresponds to each other – reflected as a mirror of constant change.

“We have not to turn spectators into actors. We have to acknowledge that any spectator already is an actor of his own story and that the actor also is the spectator of the same kind of story.“

“What we Earth- dwellers call Earth I chose to call Volva from the point of view of the people on the Moon.” Seen from the sky, Earth offers an ever changing spectacle; 
Volva means it turns.
