In the exhibition I introduce three sculptures that express themselves with "faces" in the form of three-dimensional cubes of LED lights and experience the world with sensors for touch and vision. The sculptures and I are performing for the duration of the exhibition. The project explore the objects active role in reality and speculates in their experience of the surroundings.
The project is supported by Arts Council Norway, Ragnvald & Ida Blix’ Fund and the Association of Norwegian Visual Artists.
‘This is its body’, said the sculpture, referring to its attachment, ‘his name is Daniel Tollefsen Slåttnes, he controls me and I control him. With help from his psychotherapist, he engages in hours of pain-induced meditation in order to establish a sense of empathy with my colleagues and myself. I am an extension of his mind and body, but by giving me that privilege, he has become as much an extension of mine. The singularity that our attachment manifests is entirely pragmatic, an ironing out of the universe into a one-dimensional plane.
