About the exhibition

Transflexion is an unusual, multi-artist video and sound art show exploring humanity’s evolving and expanding notions of individuality. Taking the Buddhist idea of “Dependent Origination,” which states that all things arise in dependence upon multiple causes and conditions, as a starting point, Transflexion considers the dawning realization that consciousness has no borders and that we all exist, to some degree, within everyone else in the world, and possibly beyond.

Six artists working in video/time-based media will create the visual aspects of the show, while a singular soundtrack will loop independently. The combination of one sound track and several independ videos in Transflexion is exceptional in the multiplicity of exhibitions. The sound expands the single video works and vice versa each autonomous visual changes the perception of the sound. The inner structure of the show represents the idea.

After watching one piece the sound changes its nature in the observer. Afterwards the perception is different at the next art work. The interdependence of several visual works and one sound effectively create a show that is never the same.

The dynamic nature of the circuits of communication between multiple objects and infinite reflections - the stuff of the communal fabric itself—are another aspect illuminated by the “Net of Mirrors.” Mirroring implicates reflection in form and content. It can close connections between screens or devices, between spaces and ideas, between physical and virtual levels.
