"The Theory Of Fishing" (钓鱼理论)
"The Theory Of Fishing" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
In the 1920s, mathematicians Theodor Kaluza and Oskar Klein suggested that Einstein’s theory of the four-dimensional spacetime should be extended with an extra one and possibly many more. These dimensions, however, would not be directly observable. We are really just like fish in a pond that are unaware of the outside world above the surface of the water until it starts raining, during which the rippling of the water is visible even for the fish. According to the Kaluza-Klein theory, light and gravity are simply just the “ripples” of those other dimensions. The question is: what does this have to do with art? When we stand in front of an artwork, we face something alien that we have to communicate with. If an artwork and the observer both have their own dimensions, how can they have an effect on each other? Everything happening around us will influence our understanding of a piece of art, and at the same time, hopefully, the artwork will also change us forever. And art lies somewhere in this relationship in which we are not sure if there ever can be equilibrium or what we seek for is merely this magical disturbance itself.
