Looking back to 2014

hoop the loop (step2)
by Melissa Canbaz

A chance encounter of two positions – both open and candid, having a high affinity for collaboration.They enter a dialogue and activate a process with a yet arcane outcome.

The positing is ready for their first meeting.A pitch that is safe, but not confining –
an open frame.There is scope to follow autonomous ways, be uncoerced and come back to play duality.

Destruction is the source for it ́s creation. Dismantling pieces until not more than a silver sparkling dust remains. Even the cooperation might be destructive. Particles are refined through the process, tied to others. And so it goes.Whenever it reaches a peak, it will begin to transform into the opposite, not knowing whether existence will remain.

Use and get used.

By using only a finite number of steps, it is taking up with the challenge of squaring the circle. The bodily power is temporary activated. A transformation tool with a driving force for exchange and creativity, an open structure, that is detecting and absorbing the particles.
It ́s attitude is constructive, tendency is to grow.

Stretching the vacuum.

Their allegedly opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in a free space.They interact to form a dynamic system, in which the whole is a progression of the assembled autonomous.

A yet invisible whole.

They give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another, being accord with the transition that generates the new.A Double positioning that sprouts mimetically – tangible and brisk.The germination leaves no answers. Uncertain whether it is meant to generate constant supply.

Match or clash?
