Perspective’s Gravity is the second part of its author’s second trilogy. This performance deals with the interconnection, interweaving and interaction of the environment with specimens of Homo Sapiens and with the impact that our own thoughts have on ourselves.
After the first part, entitled Étude for prepared piano and rope, where the artist created music on a piano through aerial acrobatics and the manipulation of an aerial rope, in this second part of the trilogy, the performer presents her work Perspective’s Gravity. The manipulation and (co)influence here shifts to the artist’s body, which through aerial movement and voice directly influences her environment (music, light, etc.).
Individual experience, decisions and perception of the world depend on the individual’s gaze. We are educated for a certain perspective that crystallizes us, directs us, oppresses us and makes us ideal consumers.
It is possible to radically change this perspective.
How much influence do we have as individuals, how much influence does society have, and how much influence does genetics have on changing perspectives?
Can we link our perspective to modern science’s insights into the nature of the universe and gravity?
According to quantum mechanics, reality is not objective and independent of us. The subjective observer greatly influences the results of experiments. Entanglement, interconnectedness, and co-influence go straight to the very strings with which the web of the cosmos is woven.
