The most effective representation of the ideas of life’s path and potential can be found in a simple tree branch. In the process of development, it selects a path out of multitude and each choice contains new alternatives.
I started noticing branching structures all around me. A very straightforward observation, that became the impetus behind the “Transfusion” series, was focused on the fact that everything – from a body to a culture – contains such branching structures, both literally and symbolically. To me it was an evidence of a transfused potential, that seems to be the foundational quality of our reality.
“Transfusion #5” was the first of the series that I decided to keep. Inspired by angiograms, it is a symbolic representation of a potential that is part of our physical bodies.
