Field of Dependency | Ola Lanko
It is not often that people are confronted with the unknown in everyday life. We live in an environment that we know and understand, making us feel comfortable and safe. Knowledge gained from experience, education and upbringing, accumulated over time and passed on. These are complex processes that are built into an accepted social system that determines our attitudes. ‘Field of Dependency’ is a study of the unknown. Filled with unfamiliar objects, images and materials, an experience is created of an environment that offers no frame of reference. The installation is a small reflection on the wider theme of knowledge as learned. There is always a risk of losing our frame of reference and plunging into an unknown world.
