The Aesthetics of Impact
The Aesthetics of Impact is a solo exhibition by Peter Fulop which explores the artistic possibilities of the use of a sudden impact applied on a surface. The act references the physical and psychological effect that an unexpected event or force may exert on our mental state. A spontaneous event generates a metaphysical paradox in the consciousness and changes the way perception interprets reality. The state of confusion created by the impact gives rise to questions about the existence of any permanent reality; past, present and future become a fluid dimension.
