Look In

A project by Anando Arnold and Rani B. Knobel

The object LOOK IN by Anando Arnold and Rani B. Knobel in the Apfelweinhandlung JB (JB Cider Shop), shows the path from feverish activity towards inner peace. LOOK IN makes Meditation visible. In meditation, the meditator is initially confronted with his own thoughts. Desires, worries, or hopes are triggered by outside influences, likewise by the media: the Internet, TV or newspapers. The exteriors of the object LOOK IN are covered over and over with collages of newspaper clippings, representing the outer levels of thought. The object LOOK IN is crowned by a polystyrene head. In place of a hairstyle, tower blocks form the all-encompassing skyline, cars race over head and throat, and a pair of glasses hide the eyes: a symbol for life in the big city, totally-alienated from the self. Should one go more deeply into meditation, thoughts are soothed, and one gradually finds clam, inner peace. One achieves a state of consciousness that allows a glimpse into the state of Nirvana. This state is symbolized by an illuminated glass Buddha hidden within the object, visible from outside through a peep hole. Its light projects structures and reflections onto the inner rear wall of the object.
