FH_164 Umbra

Take reality and separate it roughly in quantifiable, measurable phenomenon and interpretation, meaning usage, memory, symbol.

Deprived of its interpretative reference, reality becomes bare materiality, chaotic, disconnected, silent, non-communicable. 

 

The phenomena with which reality manifests itself are in fact inseparable from an interpretative charge that is interlaced with the quantifiable and material matter of the phenomenon itself. Our subjectivity contributes establishing reality as we perceive it, augmenting its quantifiable matter with interpretable substance.

 

Deprived of its materiality, what will persist of reality is an ‘umbra’, reminiscence and symbol.
