An Ambivalent Center
Is a game, an interactive installation which is projected onto a half-sphere of 2 meters in diameter. With the use of a joystick, you can steer through different mental landscapes. Feeling temperatures can vary between cold and warm, positive and negative, orderly or chaotic. This artwork does not tell you what to do. Take control and start the confrontation with ambivalence.
Gerwald Radsma (1977): “We see ourselves in a mirror. With our senses, we try to capture the world and process it through cognition. We are the measure of all things. At the same time, our environment is also the measure for ourselves. Without external feedback, it seems like we do not exist at all. As a traveler, I observe the psyche, as a walker through a colourful world in search of insight. This project as a whole is an ordeal of myself on myself, to eventually manifest myself as my true self.”
Gerwald teaches at the Fotoacademie in Amsterdam. He studies psychology and philosophy.
