In other words, an individual sitting in that house, for example, becomes a participant in that original idea, which has become a reality now being experienced at the tactile and mental levels, it may involve the entire subject areas of our human life, as in an economic, social, political, religious or intellectual fields of action and thought.
A car, a political idea or an ideology, an economic institution,
the various contraptions and objects which are ubiquitous within humanity’s urban spaces, were at some point only idea instances within the mind/consciousness as a concept for something dreamt of or thought of or felt. These things have over a timeline, been precipitated and persisted, memorised/archived & reiterate themselves in consciousness over the event timeline of space, distance and physical as well as psychological time.
As ideas, these can be retraced and symbolised visually as fluctuating instances of things already in existence or soon to emerge, they overlap and intersect between the phenomenology of consciousness in time, space and distance with the interface of memory and thought.
Via visual representations, we demonstrate properties, qualities, entities, systems, levels, infinite orders and relationships with the use of pigments at the macro levels but in reality as new re/arrangements of light photons and pixels at the microlevel in recreating new orders of perception and understanding.
