TENSELESSNESS II

TENSELESSNESS ll

Netfilmmakers 14.th exhibition is about attempting to accomodate the paradox of change within any system that seeks to maintain its own integrity.
I'd like to draw attention to the kinds of [double] binds which - if we survive them - force us into new levels of learning, sometimes a whole new kind of consciousness about who we are.

The first "Tenselessness" focused on boundaries of consciousness, the inside and outside of mind, body and social spaces. "Tenselessness II" marks a shift from the aesthetic to the ethical (i.e. Kierkegård's progression of personality). It is about a sense of aesthetic unity, and an attempt to accomodate the paradox of change within any system that seeks to maintain its own integrity. I'd like to draw attention to the kinds of [double] binds which - if we survive them - force us into new levels of learning, sometimes a whole new kind of consciousness about who we are. Consider your hand, and the fingers. Hold your hand up and seperate the fingers, and put them together again. Now consider yourself as an embryo, as you once have been, 8 weeks from conception. The ends of each of your four limbs 'knows how' to split into five parts, later to form the fingers and toes. Where is that knowledge located? Certainly somewhere inside you, or perhaps 'knowing how to split into N parts' is some much deeper knowledge, shared by starfish and roses, and indeed all organisms - because even single-celled organisms must face the trauma of splitting, giving up.
