Beauty as if it were knowledge
What is the power that enables us to leave the surface of our day to day human perspective in which culture and nature are obvious opposites and in which utility and comfort rule? The answer is: beauty. And as the saying goes: it is in the eye of the beholder. The position of beholder these images produce is that of a gliding bird, an imaginary bird, half human, half alien, with an ancient soul. He sees, he zooms in, he doesn’t judge or explain, he produces beauty as if it were knowledge. He doesn’t care that we are unsure what to do with it or what it means. Maybe the value of these images it that they are beautiful and raise uncertainty in one gesture.
