“Salomon saith, There is no new thing upon the earth. So that as Plato had an imagination, that all knowledge was but remembrance; so Salomon giveth his sentence, that all novelty is but oblivion.”
Francois Bacon: Essays LVIII
In view of reality, it would appear that things are happening by chance. Chance is, by definition, something that has no discernable or observable cause. But this is only the surface. The mystery that lies beyond is what fascinates me. The scientific attempt to discover this mystery, leads to more mystery, which makes it even more exiting—I am intrigued by this mystery, the continuation of which guaranties the fascination. If the parts of a work be put on the border of connection and disconnection—to itself and others—a constant oscillation will occur. This will make an in-between zone, which is the juxtaposition of the finite and the infinite, chance and determination, the concrete and the abstract; the perception of which is up to the viewer’s imagination.
