Khôra I. – projection mapping at Skyway Festival, Toruń

Khôra (Khora or Chora; Ancient Greek: χώρα)
is a philosophical term described by Plato in Timaeus as a receptacle, a space, or an interval. It is neither being nor nonbeing but an interval between in which the “forms” were originally held. Khôra “gives space” and has maternal overtones (a womb, matrix). A formless and unnameable “it” that we cannot identify but only evoke with images of unidentifiable places, like a kind of dissolution into the tohu wa bohu* (waste and void), what Levinas calls the il y a** (the Other – a formless void; a frightening neutrality devoid of meaning), the elemental night.

Special thanks goes to friend Andrej Boleslavský for Kinect recording.
