DimDiary is about the interplay of space and light, illustrated by the Australian continent and skies. Photographs unfold large panoramas, writings contribute to the displayed, some texts move on to a larger All. Text becomes con-text, muses about the power of the native, the epistemologies of space and light, their aesthetical involvement in beauty and the sublime. Where the images ‘collect’ portions of the immediate surroundings, the indivisible All implies a theoretical more. When perfect image resolution connects viewpoint to infinity, macro and micro perform a visual oneness. Then Terra Incognita appears as a dual property of paradigm, ancient as young, roamed like settled. A portrait of transition: between immediate and distant, dark and bright, black and white, red and organic, cold and heat, wet and dry, water and thirst, 0 and ∞ — breathing in and breathing out.
Like in an aesthetic laboratory, we photograph DimDiary’s space and light under the condition of constrained sensory perception – at night. Reduced light diminishes the life spending comfort of the day lit and decreases the uncertainties experienced in total darkness. It affects the perception and the cognition on attentive levels: situationally by the instinctive rise of mindfulness, post-rationally in a deeper reflection of the very experience: pictorially by the transcription of panoramical tableaux. DimDiary publishes Volume I, II, III.
DD Volume I The Erosion of Boundary photographs the nature of wilderness and construes of its presence as light and space. DD Volume II Geometric Environments photographs the evolution of pit and suburb and theorizes about space as a pairing of mass and void, and light as a dual property of matter and wave. DD Volume III Dichotomies photographs the black man at day and the white man at night, layers sensitive perception of reality with physical constructivism of quantum model.
