The study of integrative or antagonistic truths in elemental simplicity. Silence always wins.
The water shows me how earth is fragile reality. It seems invincible, but it isn't. Too much water stops the earth's breathing. It can kill earth. It can kill my body, the only earth I know.
MY BODY IS LAND WATER MAKES FLOOD
+ / POLARITY \ -
Internal spaces must accept each other / the fight is the dialog and the DUEL TO THE DEATH is THE
SNAKE EATING ITS TAIL / Can one come to accept the turbulent nature of existence and finally be one with one’s primal-self?
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE PRIMAL-SELF LIES
SIMPLY ON THE FACT THAT IT EXISTS / Rejection of it is ignorance.
------------- Stand on the ‘border’ to see violent truth. ------------
I want to exist, says the mountain. My transparent body appears in the act of destruction. The volcano destroys without forgiveness, but the volcanic land never is won by water.
The explosion moves the earth. The explosion generates earth. The explosion saves the earth.
FIRE + WINDS = EARTH \
THE ONLY WAY TO CREATE
IS TO DESTROY
ALL THAT EXISTS CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT THE
OTHER. THE SNAKE CANNOT EXIST WITHOUT ITS
TAIL OR ITS VENOM /
ITS VENOM IS ITS OWN BITE’S
Where and what is the point something ends and another begins? It is a question of identity of THE BODY.
The ambiguity of the body is in it movements. At times appears, at times disappears. Eternally involved in ties, which, OPENS AND CLOSES/ RELEASES AND CONFINES/
CONTRACTION AND EXPANSION ALTERING
AS LIFE + DEATH IN MY BODY
I try to tackle the essential point of existence or what I like to call ‘science of truth’:
MOVEMENT EXISTS / PLACE/SPACE EXISTS
/ SYSTEM OR STORY EXISTS / INFORMATION OR
SYMBOL EXISTS / BORDERS EXISTS
5 essential truths I have found to exist. I do not question them, I accept and observe their behaviour and inter-dynamics.
They are Conceptual tools used to measure and form my questions. Interrelation between information and systems in a cartographic practice illustrate these issues as a ‘whole’. They are points in a diagram, map or mountain, a ‘place/space’ or ‘location’ in virtual or physical reference. It requires certain flexibility of the body to ‘adapt’ from an old reference to a new.
The BODY shows weight of transformation once in adaptation to space.
Take responsibility of your WEIGHT and BE ‘violent truth’ in reaction and impulse to adaptation / AUTHENTICITY \ One will find the primordial reflected upon oneself once confronted with the animal. Only then can you embody the search of the SUBLIME
/ LIFE + DEATH \ ELEMENTAL ALCHEMY \
How does a symbol take form on our bodies and psyche? It is information. It is a system and it is a story. It is movement of the associative mind.
THE ASSOCIATIVE MIND IS THE NATURAL BORDER
OF THE BODY
THE MOUNTAIN IS THE NATURAL BORDER OF THE
HOW DOES GRAVITY TRANSFORM THE BODY?
The build up of this story can only exist from its starting point / PRIMAL \ foundation of our BODY. The beginning is the ground we step on
IT IS CURE
