THE SEED & THE UNIVERSE

The title of the series is taken from Deleuze (Cinema 2, 1989, p.78, London, Continuum). It refers not to a relation between something minor and something vast but to the inseparable relation that space and time share. The seed and the universe are the two sides of a space-time block, two discernible images in constant exchange. However in the process of this exchange the two images often (virtually) merge, creating points of indiscernibility where interesting correlations between space and time make their appearance (crystal images). The diptychs I have created refer to this exchange between the seed and the universe, between the limited and highly systematized space of the aircraft and the contemplation of the skies, between ‘two spaces’ which seem so distinctly different but which in fact merge into each other. It is an exploration of the peculiar space-time blocs that are constructed when we fly.
