The Terminal Station

Tor Nielsen title 1


A place beyond our material world. Again Tor Nielsen touches upon topics of consciousness. How can a subjective phenomenon co-exist with a physical and material world? In Philosophy there is a theory called Dual Aspect theory, which says that all matter has both physical and mental properties. But it is hard to imagine such a substance. The simple yet powerful contrast between interiors with clear spacial geometry and 2 dimensional repeating dots invite the observer to reinterpret what is physical.

TOR: “I wanted to imagine the moment of death, the moment of transition from a physical being to a spiritual being. Whatever that is”.

This is a developing idea and Tor plans to include in his From Ink To Oil project.
