In the blur builds the aesthetics of life, art and music, which makes the unapproachable fascinating and interesting. The installation μ [my] broaches the issue of beauty and strength of the blur in the discovery and explanation of our world. Anselm Pavlik uses the optical problem of depth of focus and overlays randomly chosen fragments of composition in his video. This work refers to our biased perception of the world, which draws a line from our personal, subjective and intrinsic cognition, to scientific knowledge, explanations and solutions. Our limitation in perceiving the wholeness and sameness forces us to deal with details and each layer individually. Putting all layers back together often creates only a partially true overall picture.
Anselm Pavlik lives and works in Vienna. His work starts with the observation of nature: form, structure, sound, colour, movement, effect and time. In search for an extensive rendition of his observations he ties visual art, music, film and natural science together. These components merge into a synthesis which becomes its own language that concludes in an indivudual perception of nature and is being integrated as a working theme. The results are room installations, films, drawings and compositions.
