“Consciousness Precedes Universes” by X U A N


“Consciousness Precedes Universes”, addresses the problem with commonly accepted realities and why it is truly impossible to validate our own presumptions and sensations as absolutes.

Objects become “real” only when observed, but without the presence of an observer, they exist in an undetermined state of probability waves. This leads to the question of whether the external world exists independently of the mind that perceives them, or is the universe a direct creation of the mind.

Are we accommodating to the laws of the universe, or is the universe reacting to our rigid expectations of how we believe should be? Are we pregnant with universes, or have the universes conceived us? Could we be then, the manipulators of our own universes?

Exhibition runs from 27 Dec 2010 to 11 Jan 2011.
