Digital impression (pasta on the human body)
Through language man has created an abstract system of conceptual thought with which he will never be fully capable of describing reality. The concept of the world is thus based on impressions of our own senses which can only give us an approximate representation of reality. Starting from this point, concepts created by man, such as territory, are really only seen as being limited when describing this reality. The direct experience of this reality can on occasions give us a better approximation. As Alfred Korzybski used as his motto The map is not the territory, thus unravelling concept, representation and reality. In this work we can see how concept, reality and man merge together since reality is one and indivisible. The fragmented vision of this world made up of Democritus´s basic bricks are being left to one side thanks to the new theories of quantum physics. According to these theories everything flows and everything is one, with all its parts being interrelated and interdependent. It is at this point that the use of language becomes dispensable since these concepts only exist in the mind. Art can show us complexities not necessarily comprehensible or conceptual, and transfers us to another state (as Lev Tolstoi states in The Kreutzer sonata), probably to the state the artist is in.
