Lecture-performance by artist Manuela Infante on the horizon as a boundary between the known and unknown.
Since Manuela Infante was a child, the one thing connecting her to her father is an endless curiosity for the unknown. Yet they developed it in very different ways: Manuela is an artist, her father an astronomer. As long as they remember they held long conversations on dark matter and the origin of the universe, but there was always one concept that recurred: Horizon.
Horizon is the boundary dividing what can be known and what will never be knowable. Just like with the sea horizon, you can try to chase it, but it will always move further away, making sure there is always a darkness out there; a place that human knowledge can never access. That territory, that horizon, is not only out there at the end of our sight, it’s also in here, stretching into our body, our psyche, our biography and our history.
This evening focuses on the Horizon as a stretching, morphing boundary, exploring the connection of the unknown-out-there, and in the unknown-in-here. A night to talk about the things we know we will never know.
“The universe loses its memory too,” said my father. “When the universe expands faster than our horizon, things start getting lost in the dark.”
