“I was a wisp of undifferentiated nothingness, and then a little peephole opened quite suddenly.”
Kurt Vonnegut uses ‘peepholes’ as a metaphorical substance for life, birth and existence. A person isn’t supposed to have a life, birth or existence, it is a peephole into time. It is a moment that humans choose what to do with it, as well as embarking on the ‘neuter’, the character forces himself to divide himself from reality after committing a double homicide.
The concept of the boxes explores a fascination with spatial formations and objects that demonstrates the characters existence. Each box substitutes the peephole as a portal into the notions of the character’s internal traumas and reflections of the ‘neuter’, whilst composing relationships with materials and repetition of time lapses tantalizing the character’s remorseful conscience.
‘Phenomenon’, is an extraordinary prodigy of existence. It presents a visual narrative of the progression of peepholes in the series of colour and the neuter, some peepholes are openings of lives and some are the end. There is a sense of misery and time passing which the openings of the peepholes are terminating into a blackened emptiness of an obsolete, crevice.
