Omschrijving werk

For over a decade, I have developed an image making procedure that combines optics, light and physico-chemical processes. A visual technology that explores detailed visuals, found in tiny configurations of liquids. The procedure exposes hidden forms, colours and textures found in chemical potentials. “In a modular set-up, a system of optical instruments regulate how light spreads through chemical mixtures. The chemical interactions are activated by adding units of liquid measurements in a custom made glass. Then, to be able to isolate and control a specific visual configuration, the space in the glasswork is reduced so turbulances and flows are limited and predictable” During the final stages of developing this procedure I became interested in the conversation between scientific representation and artistic interpretation. Being wedged in the ambiguity of that conversation. I was looking to develop an approach that would allow me to play with associative narratives that occur in the registration of naturally evolving processes. After months of research, the detailes in the configuration of different chemical interactions provide footage that contains a very specific functionality. I learned about the conviction that the construction of mimetic models of the world amounts to understanding nature’s behaviour and enhances participatory ability. Comprehension comes through the making, and plays an important role in how we perceive the world. That a depiction of a model of nature is itself a form of knowledge. It was a project of unthinkable scale, but one by one the challenges, the objections and obstacles were being overcome. I was slowly teetering on the edge of something extraordinary. The fact of it's possibility was utterly giddying - to try and capture something - shifting attention from conceptual problems and questions about technological observations towards an imaginary making.
