Projections

An academic talk and the subsequent discussion is a public display of an otherwise mostly closed-door affair, and it exposes the complex nature of the creation of knowledge. Projections is a series of paintings aiming to give visual representation to academic talks, mostly on the topics of physics and philosophy of physics. In a way, each Projection is a field report of my experience of a talk, which itself is a multidimensional beast existing in a space that exceeds the four-dimensional confines of a conference room. The talk is diffracted by my own sensibilities and projected onto the paper in real time. Some pieces are the projections of the abstract conceptual world of our models of reality and their symbolic representations: String, Loop, Set; Zero, Asymptotic, Infinity; State, Superposition, Entanglement. Others capture the emotional and the social dimensions of the talk: Enthusiasm, Self-doubt, Bravado; Camaraderie, Conflict, Agreement; Confusion, Insight, Understanding. Most of the Projections, however, are half-profiles: Confinement, Freedom, Exclusion; Interaction, Interference, Perturbation; Uncertainty, Confidence, Safety.

Select projections can be bought as prints on Society6.com: https://society6.com/kacabradonjic.
