Reality is not always probable


Colored dice
90 x 70 x 18.5 cm

‘Reality is not always probable’ is constructed from 9,981 10 mm-sized colored dice, and is generated, line by line, by manually emulating the rules of a simple computer binary program. The title quotes Jorge Luis Borges on the belief that complete, total knowledge is impossible to achieve. Simultaneously, the work explores the shift of the human experience from the material to the virtual, digital. The material and immaterial are becoming more interchangeable, as if life and fate can be reduced to 1s and 0s. The use of dice references the historical use of dice to determinate fate and luck. Being part of the recent series of the same title, this sculpture reminds us of how the digital becomes the backbone of our physical lives.
