Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river;
it is a tiger which destroys me, but I am the tiger;
it is a fire which consumes me, but I am the fire.
— Jorge Luis Borges
Meta.Morf 2014 – Lost in Transition
The perpetual processes of change that can be observed within all levels of the Universe, from micro to macro scale, from stardust to animate entities, are constantly generating new patterns, structures and forms, shaping all aspects of life.
Transformative processes carries aesthetic qualities not only of great intrinsic value, but qualities that as well can be suggested playing an essential part of the way all things develop.
Meta.Morf 2014 – Lost in Transition – aims to illuminate transformation and aesthetics and the often imperceptible transitions change is a result of, and the exhibitions presents artists with projects that from different perspectives examines the aesthetic principles of change.
With the assumption that the only true constant in the universe is change, we may indeed envision ourselves entrancingly lost in transition.
