What do we set in motion with our being in the world, as scientists, as artists, as humans? What do we make of our thoughts, skills, experiences and aspirations? What do we make of reality around us and within ourselves?

A space in which the word art and science cease to call for a distinct meaning, they happen in a suspended time.

“Is our ability to judge, to tell right from wrong, beautiful from ugly, dependent upon our faculty of thought? Do the inability to think and the disastrous failure of what we commonly call conscience coincide?”

Hannah Arendt, Thinking and moral considerations, 1971

“What I did immorally I would say, was not to remember the reason that I said I was doing it for, so that when the reason changed, which was that Germany was defeated, not a single thought came to my mind at all about that. That that meant now that I had to reconsider why I was continuing to do that. I simply didn’t think, ok?”

Richard Feynman remembering his time at Los Alamos,  BBC interview, 1981-1982

“I simply didn’t think, ok?” is a site specific installation, created in a room of Castello di Govone, in Northern Italy.

Photographic prints, visual and written notes, small objects, and a few scientific publications occupy the space horizontally and vertically, on a table, a blackboard, an archive. They evoke a presence and expose the skeleton of someone’s exploration. They challenge the relationship between thinking and making, understanding and acting, knowledge and power.
