Exhibition "Dense Space" at the Arsenāls Exhibition Hall in Old Riga, Latvia

This exhibition with over 120 works by some 80 authors analyses the characteristics of perception in space saturated with information. The diversity of content and form in art that exists simultaneously influences people’s perception. “Paradoxically, the denser the information around us, the thinner is our perception using the senses of touch and smell. Evidence of an empty space is given by light, echo and temperature. When the space becomes more dense with information we put more trust in sight and begin to categorise things because sight helps us to understand things from afar, for example, the large writing on advertisements. As soon as we begin to rely on sight, contact is lost with the other senses. This influences perception of the space. If we perceive it mainly through sight, the space becomes “thinner”. It seems that the complex levels of perception are no longer working,” says architect and exhibition curator Laura Belēviča.
