BORIS ZOUBKOUS. ARTIST STATEMENT FOR "I SURVIVED INFORMATION". 



EVERYTHING IS INFORMATION. EVEN INFORMATION IS MADE OF INFORMATION. IT STICKS TO ITSELF AND EVERYTHING AROUND, - AND PRODUCES MORE INFORMATION. THIS VICIOUS CIRCLE GETS CREATIVE AND TRANSFORMS INTO VICIOUS CUBES, VICIOUS SPHERES, VICIOUS TRUNCATED TETRAHEDRONS,- VICIOUS BUILDING BLOCKS OF LIFE. 

    AKIN TO THE CUBISTS, WHO WANTED TO SEE AND SHOW OBJECTS FROM MANY POINTS AT THE SAME TIME, IN "I SURVIVED INFORMATION" COLLECTION  I PRESENT THE IDEA OF INFORMATION   SIMULTANEOUSLY FROM OUTSIDE, INSIDE AND BEYOND ITS STATE OF BEING. I'VE PUSHED THE DNA OF INFORMATION TO THE LIMIT, SORT OF CRANKING UP THE CONCEPTUAL VISUAL HADRON COLLIDER, THAT SMASHED TOGETHER IDEA  AND  MATTER  AT THE SPEED OF ART.  

  I AM  EXPLORING THE  POLYCHRONIC UNITY OF INTEGRATION AND DISINTEGRATION OF THE IDEA OF INFORMATION,- HOW IMAGES AND WORDS MELT TOGETHER AND FORM SUPERSTRUCTURES AND THEN FALL APART INTO PIECES AGAIN. INFORMATION SURVIVES  ITSELF , - THEREFORE IT GIVES ME HOPE TO SURVIVE INFORMATION. BEAUTIFUL VICIOUS GEOMETRY OF TRANSFORMATIONS CONTINUES! CHEMICAL, SPIRITUAL, EMOTIONAL , MENTAL, PHYSICAL, METAPHYSICAL ETC. MICRO AND MACRO DRAMAS MELT INTO ONE SYMPHONIC  APOTHEOSIS OF INFORMATION. TRILLIONS OF TRILLIONS OF INFORMATIONAL REACTIONS ARE PRESENT EVERY SECOND. 

 ART HISTORY HAS ALWAYS DELT WITH THE  INFORMATION IN  A CLASSIFYING, DESCRIPTIVE,  POPULARIZING MANNER, -BUT THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN THE ART HISTORY THAT THE IDEA OF INFORMATION ITSELF WAS RADICALLY TURNED  INTO PRISMATIC FOCUS OF AN ARTIST (AS A HUMAN BEING, AS A PRODUCT OF INFORMATION, AS A CREATOR OF INFORMATION) SURVIVING  THE TOTALITY, THE OMNIPRESENT FORCES OF INFORMATION.  "I SURVIVED INFORMATION" IS A NEW POP ICON OF A NEW CONSCIOUSNESS - WE ALL SURVIVED INFORMATION.       NOW WE KNOW ! 

   I AM INTERESTED IN HEIGHTENING THE VISUAL AND CONCEPTUAL TENSION OF MY ART WORKS SURFACES : OXYMORONIC  HIGHLIGHT SPRAY PAINT ON CAMOUFLAGE FABRIC, CROSSWORD PUZZLES TRANSFORMING INTO CAMOUFLAGE DESIGN  AND VICE VERSA,  SILENT (UNFILLED) CROSSWORD PUZZLES DISINTEGRATING INTO SPACE ( BECOMING EVEN MORE SILENT), CUT OUTS ON  SPECIFIC VISUAL TEXTURES "TALKING" TO THE VIEWER, HANDMADE CARDBOARD MOSAICS PRESENTING PIXELATED AND TERSE TECH AND  INSTRUCTIONAL MESSAGES,- BUT WITH HOME MADE AND HANDMADE WARM HUMAN GOOFINESS....  

I AM CREATING VISUAL MANTRAS, MANDALA- LIKE VISUAL SAFETY ISLANDS OF PLAYFUL INFO.  I CONSCIOUSLY USE CROSSWORD PUZZLES, CAMO, MAZES, DUCT TAPE, COMPUTER LANGUAGES, NOTE SFAFF, ETC. AS BEARERS OF INFORMATION AND I COMBINE THEM TO INTENSIFY THE VISUAL  DENSITY OF INFORMATIONAL UNITS.

    THE CENTRAL MORAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL, PHILOSOPHICAL AND AESTHETIC IDEA OF THIS BODY OF ART WORKS IS SURVIVAL OF THE HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS, MIND, SPIRIT, SOUL AND BODY IN THE ONSLAUGHT  OF POLITICS, ESPIONAGE, FALSE ADVERTISEMENT, MISINTERPRETATIONS, MEDIA POWER, LACK OF KNOWLEDGE, WISHFUL THINKING, GROUP MENTALITY AND GLIB LIES. 

  THEREFORE " I SURVIVED INFORMATION" IS THE UNIVERSAL HUMAN CONDITION, DESCRIBING OUR  BRAVE AND GLORIOUS CRAWLING  THROUGH THE ENDLESS AND AMUSING LABYRINTH OF INFORMATION.
