Description

This sculpture is about perception. I find general human perception with its relationship to the senses and mind; as well as individual perception with all the specific, personal factors to be fascinatingly interesting and bottomless in terms of what there is to learn about it. Now, there is the idea of pure perception found in various traditions which I think gives a background and framework within which to understand "non-pure" perception. In case there are conflicting ideas of pure perception, I will briefly describe that which I refer to:

It is direct perception which is unfiltered by thoughts.

Using this as the conceptual setting into which we place ordinary or common perception, it now has comparative structure. The sculpture is about ordinary perception which is related to thoughts and concepts. With this type of perception, psychological aspects are greatly relevant and colour our experiences. The title "The Continuity Of Events" refers to the perceived continuity of events over and against a reality consisting of acausal movement. Now, this acausal existence is a rather radical idea. I have come across it in Zen as well as in quantum physics theory. In Zen there are claims of first-hand experiences which makes it all the more notable. In our everyday experience there may be a tendency to put events we either witnessed or were involved in directly in chronological order and tack on reasons or causes for it as well. We may create a story out of these events in some cases. And, a story without order or sequence is not commonly favoured.

Physically, the sculpture has a corner which creates a semi-division between the left and right side. This corner, since shared does not subtract from the continuity however it does affect the flow. This feature represents the idea that we artificially piece together bits in our stories (whether they are in our heads or communicated) in order to give fluidity to the separate events we have received. The "outer" or "incasing" formal structure of the piece reflects the idea of perceptions as superficial, thought-based stories. With the form itself, I get a feeling of vivid colours , life, energy and passion which is meant to express the excitement and power that these infinite events bring to us as the witnesses or participants.
