Abstract
The thesis is a theoretical introduction and technical documentation of my ongoing project, “N”. N is a themed collection of both textual writings and visual artworks. Divided into three chapters, Nothingness, Ubiquitous and Enigma, N draws upon diverse content from science, philosophy, psychology, theology, anthropology and literature. N seeks potential correlations between drastically different paradigms and fields. On a broader scale, N serves as an incentive to creative thinkers to initiate conversations between long isolated and self-privileged disciplines, mediating between them to collaboratively generate new insights into our fundamental questions. The thesis covers the personal and theoretical backgrounds of N, the symbolic arrangements of its content, its post-structuralist style of writing and the metaphorical implications of its artistic praxis. The thesis also contains fragmented texts excerpted from N, as well as detailed descriptions of some selected artworks.
