Inspired by early inquiries into visualization of 4-dimensional space through cube shape by Charles Howard Hinton in his book “A new era of thought” to create my artwork I’ve decided to focus on the idea of a ‘flattened’ 3d space. As in a 3-dimensional space a 2-dimensional plane has no “corners” to hide behind – so is a 4-dimensional space unfolding a 3-dimensional topology ultimately leaving no hidden nooks. In other words, 4-dimensional existence implies perceiving all sides of a structure at once. Translucent textiles enable the viewer to experience such implications. However, these concepts are challenged by elements of nature – the light is capable of constantly alternating the colors; moving around the structure endlessly transforms the appearance, educating the viewer about the ever-changing topology of the space. The primary and secondary colours become a blended visible spectrum where one colour no longer can be separated from the rest. This endless andlessness of forms, perceptions and concepts is at the heart of being a human. We know there is no bottom or top level to existence, yet we still push further and further with our futile desire to reach the “final frontier” of space-time, thought and being. This tiny sculpture is a testimony to our place in the universum – a visual example of how little we understand and at the same time how bottomless this little quantity is.
