MinXus-Lynxus First International Exhibition of Holes – Niklas Heed (Gothenburg, Sweden)

Special mail for Her Regal Majesty today, delivered hand to hand by the Wakoshi postman. I don’t know why he looked so amused, he should be used to delivering mail to the Empress that lives at Chuo 2-8-9-402 🙂

The cardboard swallows the art, says the package. And we can see several interesting circles already.

Inside, a circular note saying “This cardboard has been exposed to 5 mega electron volts X20. Therefore it is fragile and therefore, it can easily eat a variety of art.”

Well, some art has clearly been eaten, yes. Or engulfed. Very intriguing…

 Niklas kindly told us a little bit more about this piece. Using electron accelerators in his work, he can project electrons through a cannon-like device to make them hit and alter any material placed in front of it.

At high speed, the material becomes porous, which is what happened to this piece of cardboard and which is why it became so voracious. Niklas’ experimental parameters were carefully designed so as to reach a kind of equilibrium or perfect conditions for making holes. Had he altered the electrons’ speed even more, the material would have fallen apart as atoms get smashed off the board. A disappearing hole. A future hole. A self-eating hole, a bit like quicksand.

So we have a circular piece of cardboard containing an art-eating hole, made of millions of holes, that might swallow itself into a future hole. This, for sure, is a case of the highest interest for MinXus-Lynxus!

And I am not supposed to tell you this, but Niklas can also turn glass into jewels. Yes, it’s all true. You know where to find him…

Niklas, this is an outstanding contribution to the First International Exhibition of Holes, many thanks for this very unique piece.
