One could possibly tell the history of our species and its relationship to the world and their reality through the expansion of dimensions, eyes on the horizon, three-dimensional preys and predators running, the hunt, and the birth of symbolic thought on bidimensional drawings on charcoal and ochre, composed within that elusive dimension, time. Since then, string theory states has postulated the existence of at least 11 dimensions, most of them beyond our perception. So we keep on counting, mostly 1, 2, 3. This dimensional game comes into play in our bodies themselves, in which the largest organ strikes us as bidimensional: our skin. It is this dimensionality that seems to be in constant operation in David Schiesser’s work, from our oldest practices with charcoal to the latest programs in photography. (Words by Ricardo Domeneck)
