IN-VISIBLE for CODEX
“What is the hardest thing of all?
The one that seems the easiest: with the
eyes to see what before the eyes
lies.” (J.W. Goethe)
In-visible is about having attention for yourself and the way we relate to the world, prompting a greater focus and desire to know rather than reject. The images that you find reflected in the lenses are related to a mirrored door, in which everyone finds themselves the moment they pick up and observe a lens. This passage brings the subject closer to the object, becoming an integral part of it. The mirror is the most direct symbol of spiritual vision, contemplatio, and in general of gnosis. When the heart has become a pure mirror, then the world is reflected in it as it really is, without the distortions resulting from passionate thinking. As long as the heart-or the spirit of knowledge-reflects the manifold world, there remains the separation between object and subject, between inner and outer.
The mirrored door represents the threshold, the possible passage, the initiation to the passage from one dimension to another, a link between worlds, planes, states, epochs, or even a free space, from fear, where awareness and peace can be born.
