Super SubjectivityA thought on mind-designs
I have always been extremely fascinated with the balance between the rational and emotional, the objective and subjective. The medium of letters and words is quite a playground for objective and subjective interaction. One can be a great, thorough journalist or a talented writer of novels by precisely writing down what he sees or what he wants the reader to see in his or her mind. But next to this world of red, yellow and blue, the world that we universally comprehend, there is a world of color tones and tints, a world where you can mix existing words to create rare or even non-existing concepts and designs.
These designs live in the mind of the viewer. In this case, the kind of viewer that has the patience to read this text till the end. The beauty of this patience is that this viewer can walk back and forth, pass this text, without having to read it again to see the image, or design, he created of it.
In my case, the objects I collected are about daily, or very un-daily manifestations. About relations between people, about secrecy, melancholy, hidden feelings, underlying stories, nostalgia, inside jokes. It’s about being happy but actually sad, or being sad but actually surprisingly happy. But that is my subjectivity on the collected objects. You can have a completely different mind-design on this, but to be clear, there is nothing to agree or disagree about. There is only a fascinating diversity.
The most authentic world you’ll ever know, is the world you have created in your mind. An image you’ve shaped, coloured and materialized intuitively without condition. When we’re trying to translate or express this world by using our common mediums, like words, it is inevitable that there will be a loss of some of that authenticity. For this reason, some people keep more of this world to themselves, or they simply do not have the right medium to express themselves. Others, have the absolute need to expose some scenes of their incredible world. But then again, there is nothing to be sad or happy about, to agree or disagree on. It is the mystery and diversity of the subjective within a human-being, that makes interaction between us all so attractive.
