Vitrine Blanche #21 // The eye adapts so quickly that change is imperceptible. Intervention by Eli Cornejo
Curator: Stephanie Fenner
Nature is the great master for all our learning processes. It expresses itself along the year, showing us the joy of acceptance and the understanding of us having no control on anything. Just like rituals take place in different stages, actors, performances, the four seasons manifest themselves, allowing us each time to go deep inside ourselves to reach this knowledge that is present and is being ignored.
The development of huge metropolis’ turns away from this processes, making us believe that we are no nature, that we are something else, or come from somewhere else. The invisibility of the cycles – whether we see them or not, they keep happening. The obsession with observing the nature, trying to speak its language, to connect from our very same essence.
The need of observing ourselves, to understand ourselves better, in order to connect with others.
Just observing. No labeling. Letting it all flow and go.
“The eye adapts, from paper to black cinder marks, so quickly that change is imperceptible.”
