Pressetext:

It all began with a disappearance. That of Mark E., a young physicist who after years of research inexplicably vanished just as he was to publish his theses on the existence of a new dimension, which he had named "minus one". What happened to Mark? And how was it that years after his disappearance, his father swore that he had met him in the body of a nomad child?

This strange episode, probably linked to the pain of his son"s vanishing, could however be linked to Mark"s research. Indeed, before Mark, rare were those to have probed the links between psychic reality and the quantum world so deeply. His research, halfway between physics and psychoanalysis, presupposed a radical redefinition of temporal parameters. He had stated on a number of occasions that he was on the point of discovering an entry into the entirety of the alternative routes that follow our decisions. Routes that normally remain invisible, at least on a conscious level.

Among the research and theories linked to the quantum world, the existence of new realities and other dimensions has already been posited on a number of occasions, without ever moving past the stage of speculation. There is, however, a widely held opinion, that of beginning a dialogue on the duality of subject and object, and their separation in the process of defining reality. Science has broken the glass and transformed the role of the observer into that of the participant, one able to directly influence the reality of the experiment. John A. Wheeler – one of Mark"s mentors, known for having given black holes their name – declared that the concept of the world as "something that is outside of here" no longer exists.
It wasn"t just Mark who vanished, but also reality, as we usually comprehend it.

Each disappearance, however, above and beyond leaving traces, opens up new possibilities. And that is how the dualities and dichotomies that habitually rule our experience of space and time will be redefined: life and death, father and son, fidelity and infidelity, interior and exterior space, the imaginary and real world. The once clear boundaries between these polarities are now revealed as blurred and the space that separates them is being reorganized according to psychogeographies and subjective trajectories.

As this sometimes takes place during experiments exploring the sub-atomic world, linear paths, taken on their own, reveal themselves as false. It is only the sum of all possible trajectories that allows for the inference of valid understanding.

Thus, it is thanks to the "interference patterns" between different stories and the material obtained by superposing fragments and temporal segments that new visions of reality are produced.

James Joyce called "epiphanies" the manifestations that sometimes emerge on the surface and imply objects, things, dialogues and people: an impromptu revelation of a double nature and radiant spirit normally hidden behind the carapace of daily life. In the succession of such shifts in perspective, it can happen, as in Ulysses, that a clock, a simple piece of urban furniture in a Dublin street, can be transformed, with its dial, into a spiritual eye that probes the darkness.
