Bodies in space form a field of (non)contact force, a network of interdependencies is established, knowingly or not, endlessly morphing and curling on itself into previously unseen shapes – vectors of reflections and refractions manifest in patterns that are at best visible in hindsight, but usually remain invisible to the cells and the selves.
Across history there have been many practices and rites of passage committed to improving the ability to know and be with oneself in order to survive and thrive. The ever-spiking population, the commodification of basic and made-up needs and the reliance on an intertwined grid of people and services have drastically reduced this capacity. Forcefields iii is a materialization of the need of understanding and actively digesting the surrounding environment, transforming the traffic of expectations and pressures into a distinctive protective field.
A field is a structure, a structure is an object, an object is a surface, surface is separation, separation is desire, desire is yearning, yearning is expectation, expectation is sorrow, sorrow is waning, waning is dusk, dusk is extinction, extinction is deliverance, deliverance is renewal, renewal is energy, energy is force, force is a field.
