I WISH I WAS - BUT - MAYBE I ALREADY AM?
a brief photograpic collage by Isabel Burr Raty
In this collage, Isabel poetically portrays some hybrid species that she encounters in one of her time travelling practices - when breaking the limits of the biological-self. By conducting sexual bioelectricity through her anatomy’s connective tissues into her pineal gland, her brain opens liminal territories that she explores in a future that stands in the past. Here, the forms of a 3-dimensional reality, including the frontiers of human/animal/plant are altered. Here, reality seemingly becomes a quantum mystery: “Being one, yet another at the same time in a non-present unit”. This fascinating hypothesis, that escapes our perception of temporality, might be close to clarifying existence and may one day find itself banging against a hybrid species mix. A mix discovered or created by the possible “mistakes” of quantum mechanics.
