FRACTAL UTOPIA

A DREAM OF GLOBAL UNDERSTANDING 

    

OVERVIEW OF THE PROJECT

 

A journey through the exhibition* unfolds into the following series of nine (9) consecutive rooms**:

 

1-  THE ORIGIN

The first space reveals the simplicity and enigmatic power of the primary colors as fundamental statements (a tribute to Rotchenko), as well as the complex structure of the big chart REPRESENTATIO UNIVERSALIS  with its three principal sections (Politics, Identity, Science) and multiple subdivisions and categories. 

2-  THE EVOLUTION

The second space will exhibit four graphics illustrating a summary of the history of the universe, from the Big Bang to the present, with some perspective into the future. 

3-  THE GALLERY

The third space offers a strong reminder of the extraordinary power of painting in its most fundamental characteristics: color, form, texture. Red, blue and yellow will be worked on three canvases in order to expose the dialectic contradiction between chaos and structure, creating harmonious living objects. The three paintings will affirm with evidence what painting and only painting can do. 

4-  SAVE THE WORLD

This installation will show, in different format and medium, a variety of  statistics and global data concerning humankind and the future of our planet. The installation will also exhibit some of the many propositions and projects of all kind currently discussed and implemented throughout the world with a conscious decision of working toward a better future for humanity.

The ensemble will be presented and assembled as a mix of high and low technology within the context of global and local issues.

 

5- THE METAMORPHOSE

The fifth space will show a gigantic and mysterious sphere, lit in the gloom of a "word-uttering" room. It will be surrounded by twelve sculptures covered with pure white glitter, giving the appearance of precious artifacts that glow in the dark - like snow in the night. 

6-  THE AGREEMENT

The sixth space will contain a plasma monitor that lies flat on the floor, facing up, with nternational news playing in real time, without sound. A blue ladder will also be placed flat on the floor few feet apart from the monitor. (In mythology, the ladder is often used as a metaphor for reaching dreams, or building bridges between cultures and humans). On the wall, a sign will hang on the wall that read:  //eye_luv-you.

7-  THE COMMUNICATION CENTER

The seven space will have a table with a laptop computers connected to the Website FRACTALUTOPIA.COM The Website will be projected on the wall to magnify the interactive process. The public will be invited to browse and exchange ideas about the exhibition and series of related themes. Links to email addresses and blogs will allow the participants to send messages or feedback to the project. 

8-  THE YELLOW SANCTUARY ROOM

After viewers experienced installations one through seven, having undergone challenging and intense stimulation of the senses and intellect, they  will now enter a peaceful, calm and meditative space. It will allow viewers to feel the incommensurable and incomprehensible reality of the infinity of space and of eternity of time - and communicate awareness concerning these two realities of infinity and eternity

9-  THE NEW VISION

The final room will be painted in black and covered with "eyes" (achieved through photographic images) randomly scattered over the walls. The eyes will look at the viewer, who will be looking into a large mirror: a direct reminder of the subjectivity of all perspective.
