A Response to a Perfect Situation
Artist: Ciprian Ciuclea
October 6 – October 18. 2015
OPENING: Tuesday, October 6, 7 PM

Statement 1
The perfect situation can be described as an original homogenous and ordered position with low entropy in which the initial state is not necessarily an ideal one.

Statement 2
The unaltered state can be described within a stable system.

When an external force is missing (or is reduced) the system is self-conserving. Limited interaction can be seen as a hidden presence. Minimal information conserves the perfect situation and spreads within the interval (stable, unstable).

Possible situation:
- object placed in an open system (interacting with the environment), which can be defined as separate entity (self-sufficient)
- information contained by this object at a given moment can be recycled
- self-definition through a process resulting in the previously described object helps (re)order the information
- the process is irreversible and can only be described in a certain moment

He develops complex installations involving light, sound and video. The themes explored, often using his personal face and body as an instrument, are related to social aspects of communication and message interpretation, contemplation and surveillance, usually placed in relationship with scientific aspects of human existence.
