This is a one channel version of 'Hidden Topology of Being'. This video-animation questions our contemporary (science based) perception of the phenomena of life as well as changes in our sense of space, time and information. The piece was realized with the support of the CEMA Centre for Experimental Media Art in collaboration with the National Centre for Biological Sciences in Bangalore, India . It was inspired by the PDB 6I1B protein molecule (“basic brick of life”). Its visualization was transformed into an artistic multi layered narrative bridging scientific inspirations with personal intuition and imagination.
(...) In our daily perception we live in a four-dimensional reality. However our relationship with the reality might be much more subtle than what our senses offer us to believe. In the field of superstring theory, the M-theory assumes the existence of additional dimensions hidden from our limited perception, as well as their fluctuation and interconnectivity. What does it mean for us to live in a multidimensional universe with our own bodies hiding manifold worlds?
The original piece consists of 3 videoanimations inspired by a protein molecule PDB 6I1B. Its convolute structure, on one hand-side, reminded me of Calabi-Yau manifolds - mysterious geometric formations in which successive dimensions of our world are “curled up” on the subatomic scale. On the other hand-side, whilst exposed to X-rays, this structure reveals the arrangement of atoms that might be easily mistaken for a map of the starry Sky. In my installation I bridge micro and macro scales, scientific imagery with daily recordings and poetry, translating scientific ideas into the area of art as a source of personal and collective consciousness and invite intuitive examination of the unfathomable nature of our reality.
