Alexander Karl Felch - Transient Hole (Variations) I-X 2017-20

Across the floor of a white, three-dimensional room a little black hole constantly and randomly moving. The hole is simultaneously there and not there. It is a portal to now here. But is it really? Might it not lead to transcendence, to another reality, or perhaps our reality can only be understood through this liminal presence of nothingness?

Transient Hole (Variations) is a hybrid curatorial/artistic project and a symposium started in summer of 2017 by viennese artist and curator Alexander Felch. The project`s title refers to a concept for a media artwork, that cannot, properly  speaking, be materialized for it deals with a moving void – a transient hole. International artists/scientists of various fields are invited to interpret, express and even find solutions to this paradox and develop means to represent it to display processes that cannot be depicted in reality. The various responses to the Transient Hole problematic are gathered in a collected volume that is in itself a reflection on the boundary between art and science, reality and fantasy.

The project appears – just like the transient hole – in different cities popping up in various forms. 2017-2020  ten variations have been realised.
