An audiovisual installation with gifs that process the images used in average life in various ways. Audio is still in production, but will process images and translate it into sound within a tonal spectrum defined by the artist.
Original size is:
The installation consist of a constellation of 5 animated gifs:
The setup of this installation as a polyptich, refers to the tradition of painting in a more religious (European) context. The gifs have been positioned in a cross formation, and the individual animations also rotate, giving some extra symbolical layers of meaning to the underlying process of creating [average life] and the impossible quest of trying to capture or summarize life in a visual way.
It also refers to the 'cycle of life', patterns within patterns.
Average Life could be called a coming of age story; it's a testament to the awakening awareness concerning the activity of the PUER AETERNUS archetype in my life. On the left the installation depicts the struggle with reality, the conscious efforts to overcome the domination of subconscious irrational forces by conscious efforts. On the right a pure PUER AETERNUS product is shown, an explosion of color and motion in an ever changing fantastic realm. The sky is the limit. The force of creation can't be pinned down in a singular form. This is the divine child in all its glory. My soul covers both the extremes and the whole spectrum in between, and I hope this installation manages to show a glimpse of it.
