The exhibition entitled “The fantastic journeys of energy” negotiates and aims to attract, generate and enhance discussions about the various forms of energy in order to explore the ways matter changes through its journeys. Energy is never consumed or lost but due to conditions it is transferred from one form or power into another; similarly to a traveler who is exploring the physical world – it can be conceived as a voyage of these forces.
The working materials of this show are the immutable laws that govern Nature as well as Heisenberg’s Principle of Uncertainty where at the fundamental level Nature is inherently random. Important factors are meanings of space, time, motion and the innertia of a body depending on the different types of energy and its results: the human gesture and its effect on the substances, light, wind, fire, water, fractals, magnetic fields, sound, communication, organic materials and the physicochemical dynamics that govern them. These objectives constitute installations, paintings, drawings, collages, prints, sculptures, ready-mades, video, sound and actions where the participant artists are exploring with poetic attitude the uses and transformations of the different forms of energy.
