THE INNER WORLDS OF OUTER SPACE

One way of reaching infinity is to enter our inner world. There are no limits to this inner world, so it fulfills our need to go beyond e v e r y t h i n g w e c a n t h i n k o f . We c a n g e t l o s t i n o u r i n n e r w o r l d , a n d find ourselves at the same time. Our inner world is a spiritual one, where the mind wanders in a kind of void, a space that is not tangible, yet there, a world created in the mind itself, where space and matter integrate into something entirely n e w. T hu s w e d i s c o v e r a n e w w o r l d t h at w a s a l w ay s t h e r e , w a i t i n g t o be acknowledged. A world where we can be whatever we want, even w i t h o u t w a n t i n g a n y t h i n g . We e x p e r i e n c e t h i s w o r l d a s i f w e o b s e r v e ourselves in it, as if it is a mirror in which we can truly see ourselves. When mapping this infinite inner world we have to become conscious o f t h e v o i d s , t h e i n - b e t w e e n s , t h e ‘ n e g a t i v e’ s p a c e . We h a v e t o f i n d the entrance to this world that is not there, but van be experienced o n l y i n t h e m i n d . M i n d o v e r m at t e r, i n a n e w w ay.

BARREN MATTER

The desire to go beyond known landscapes can also be satisfied by entering a world yet to be discovered and conquered. This is symbol i z e d b y a k i n d o f ‘ m o o n s c a p e ’, f o r p l a n e t s a r e t h e n e w d e s t i n a t i o n o f e x p l o r e r s i n t o d a y ’s w o r l d . T h e r o u g h a n d b a r r e n l a n d s c a p e o f t h e moon represents an undiscovered and primeval landscape, unmapped, yet to be conquered by mankind.
