Theda did it again
I have little time to blog at this moment, but I simply had to do this one even so. Because Theda Tammas did it again. Blowing me away with an incredible powerful installation at Split Screen Installation Space. Dividni Shostakovich also did it again of course, by choosing Theda as follow up of ‘Everywhere and nowhere’ by the also always excellent exhibitor JadeYu Fhang. His choice for quality above quantity and popularity in SL really makes me happy. It is the kind of works that really get under your skin, or in this particular case, connect with your soul, hence the title of this new installation: ‘Dissected Soul’.
I DON’T KNOW HOW MANY SOULS I HAVE – FERNANDO PESSOA
I don’t know how many souls I have.
I’ve changed at every moment.
I always feel like a stranger.
I’ve never seen or found myself.
From being so much, I have only soul.
A man who has soul has no calm.
A man who sees is just what he sees.
A man who feels is not who he is.
Attentive to what I am and see,
I become them and stop being I.
Each of my dreams and each desire
Belongs to whoever had it, not me.
I am my own landscape,
I watch myself journey –
Various, mobile, and alone.
Here where I am I can’t feel myself.
That’s why I read, as a stranger,
My being as if it were pages.
Not knowing what will come
And forgetting what has passed,
I note in the margin of my reading
What I thought I felt.
Rereading, I wonder: “Was that me?”
God knows, because he wrote it.
Just go and see
No more words needed than above. Just go and see for yourself.
Do use the the regional Windlight Setting and enough Draw Distance. It is essential to see the work in the way it has to be seen.
Thank you Theda and Dividni for a very impressive experience.
