The work of Eduardo Basualdo displayed at Hacking Habitat can be seen as the portrayal of cosmic dark matter that threatens human life on earth, but also as a poetic reflection on today’s information superhighway, the new chaos in which we are still struggling to find our bearings.
Basualdo’s work opens a window onto another world. It reveals something of the invisible and examines the relationship between what the mind experiences and what the body feels. His installations play with our perception and the limits of the material world, and places human kind in perspective. When we come face to face with the mysterious forces of the universe, what remains of us? Our unconsciousness? Our illusions?
