SASG, Seoul, Korea
In The Seam multimedia installation, artists employ a basketball found in the river, for media manipulations to demonstrate the cognitive seam between various appearances (vision and sound) of the object.
We got this shabby ball out of the Anyangcheon river on Anton's birthday. Just before we talked about the fact that basketball is what we lack in Seoul for a normal life. The ball was so beautiful that we took detailed pictures of it from all sides and produced a short film about how it works as an object of phenomenological consideration.
Between the ball we hear, and the ball we see an obvious gap is revealed, the jump over is provided by the special trick that we do behind the back. Superposition of two perceptions into one object requires overcoming this abyss, which is ensured by our faith and as well by applied blindness that allows to ignore insurmountable obstacle.
We notice the object as Simple and Odd. Through this oddity particular complexity of the object may arise. If you look closely at the object, you can see the seam — the hole through which it eludes being hold, leaving only envelop in clenched hands. This hole belongs to Nonknowledge, it serves as a guarantee of ontological autonomy of the object, but not only the object.
