“Rendezvous Of Arguments”
‘ Not a discovery, just the Ego Spiral Paradox’

2003, installation, wood, plastic, blue box fabric, metal
In my work two figures meet in an unusual situation to solve the Ego Spiral Paradox. Their symbolic handshake is portrayed/performed in a conscious simplicity, like a reminder, and because of this it could serve as a general model for other problem solutions. We just have to find the story they illustrate, the blue box is ready.
’’ The convergent series have quite beautiful qualities. If you continue the series: 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16…ad infinitum, and then add together all its numbers, the total sum will be exactly 2. Though we can never complete the series, we know precisely ‘what it is up to’, as it were. Similarly, though you can never reach the core of the ego spiral, you can predict with fair precision how it will function and behave.’’
