To converse is to maintain a relationship, exchange views.
Convertere: to turn around or change, the opposite - see Convert.
I enjoyed watching your film on the convent. Or is it on that quiet building
where the nuns reside, they are so inherently present, a place where they
seem to exist, full of potential energy. Spirituality, religion, belief: I don’t
know, I guess I’m ignorant. What do we believe in, or need to believe in?
Do we need to know? Is knowledge not overstretched at times? Don’t
know either. You asked me what I believe in. I believe in art, almost
religiously. I believe in energy. I think to believe that energy might be
the subject of your films. Things happen and while they happen they do
show themselves, which is energy. They manifest. Manifestations need
an observer. You are one. That is what you share. A space not loaded
by presence (that is energy) does not exist. I believe that this is what you
show us. That field is large and does not relate solely to architecture. You
have the luxury to be freed of looking for a topic, topics manifest. Can’t
wait to encounter your next observations.
Looking Forward, Koenraad
