Abstraction – Down The Rabbit Hole
During another load shedding outage in Cape Town, and with nothing else to do but sit in the dark on a Thursday night, I decided to go to the beach, camera in hand, to watch the Poi dancers paint with fire. Heading back home after an entertaining night, I knew that what I had captured would be another great abstraction.
The first use of the phrase falling “down the rabbit hole” comes to us thanks to the great Lewis Carroll, who introduced the term in 1865 in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. In the story, Alice literally falls down the hole of the White Rabbit, taking her to Wonderland. In this case, falling down the rabbit hole meant entering a strange and absurd alternate universe.
I named this abstract artwork ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’ because the image is indicative of a wormhole which theoretically is a passage through space-time.
It is good to be curious. To be an active participant in finding answers to questions. Even though the outcome is unknown, the act of searching will bring us closer to the answers we seek.
