Tracing the milieu - what were you thinking?
Curator: Marija Bjelić
Dejan Todorović's exhibition v0: oscillator is the first in the series of 3M3 exhibitions in the Kolektiv Gallery, framed with the theme "Tracing the Milieu - What were you thinking?" established by Marija Bjelić, curator of 2018/2019 season.
Nothing is mathematically denoted by zero, which is graphically represented by a void within a rounded space. Zero is the whole number that follows number -1 and precedes number 1.
This installation is a tool for testing the integrity and stability of the state of the displayed window in an environment that occasionally and temporarily destabilizes it. The zero-projected state of the metaphor is the realization of the initial creative idea, while each of the destabilization is a consequence of the unpredictability of the context.
The goal is to initiate thoughts about change and constants; rest and movement; axes and oscillations; in architecture, or in some other area of interest of the observer/passer-by.
Every movement, flash, sun, cloud, reflection, or car's lights give the image a new character.
Can it maintain its zero state?
