Art Project «Seeing The Invisible»
The artwork «Disapprobation» (part of the Art Project «Seeing The Invisible») refers to something we do every day: we make judgments on others, we approve, and we disapprove. In his «Enquire Concerning Human Understanding», David Hume claimed that reason is the slave of passion, which itself takes a position, and approves or disapproves a fact or an action. In his «Critique of Pure Reason», Immanuel Kant argued that reason by itself can determine moral value and approve or disapprove, independently of passion. Whether the disapprobation comes through passion or reason, in our world of commingled cultures and traditions, we may confront innumerable moral codes, all different from one another. There is no way to gain approbation from each of these sources trying to do so would make us feel even worse. Instead, we should clearly define our own moral code and then stick to it whether or not others approve.
We can hardly see the invisible for example, those children’s puzzles which have objects hidden in a picture. We saw none of these things until we really began searching for them in unlikely places. They had been invisible to us, but before long we began to see the invisible.
In her book «Exploring the Invisible: Art, Science, and the Spiritual», Lynn Gamwell shows how modern science has transformed modern art and reveals that the world beyond the naked eye - made visible by advances in science - has been a major inspiration for artists ever since.
In his book «Seeing the Invisible», Michel Henry uncovers the philosophical significance of Wassily Kandinsky’s revolution in painting: that abstract art reveals the invisible essence of life and overturns our conceptions about art, because it seeks to express the internal aspect of phenomena, in other words, to paint the invisible.
