As the human brain reaches a state of flow, of immersion and trance, the border between reality and illusion becomes less clear. We dive into a deeper understanding of our relationship with nature and light, and start to see the beauty of simple things around us. Some say there is a metaphysical plane where we wonder about questions of mind and matter, existence and consciousness – basically abstractions that form us and everything we experience around us, at all times.
Timo Kaleva is an artist who has always been inspired by the metaphysical plane of thought, as well as fractals, symmetry and the magic of the ultraviolet glow. His project – Metaphysical Fractals – is a form of respect to the human capability of appreciating art and beauty. The project focuses on UV paintings, decorative structures, light design and video mapping. His motivation to create comes from seeing people dive into that state of flow, where the limits of reality are broken: there is freedom for the mind to run wild and the body to heal, strengthen in dance and movement.
You are invited to experience Timo’s world through his art – through Metaphysical Fractals.
