Parallel Lines Cross at Infinity
text, various media 400 x 72cm
The work refers to the axiomatic geometric postulate (after euclid) that two lines that lie parallel to each other actually never cross. Many thinkers have tried to refute the postulate as it cannot be applied for non-euclidian space: a notion that takes us to the limits of conceivability as we cannot grasp infinity which also evokes the sensibility of an ultimate void. On site the words parallel lines cross at infinity can be read from a far distance and from different perspectives hence vividly illsutrating the postulate but at the same time creating the experience of a new thought-space.
