“Lightning Struck” does not only symbolise a wakeup call, with tons of steel, concrete, electricity and light, it’s physical presence makes it act like one. Plato’s cave is not merely a philosophical metaphor, it’s in fact a very much literal depiction how higher dimensions project it’s existence onto lower ones. What we observe from our sensory faculties is vast limited and deceitful as it maybe just a projection of something could never to perceived by us. This necessity of other unknown existences is vital undertone along our human history. May it be folklores, mythologies, conspiracy theories, paranormal phenomenons, and even till today the “not yet unified theory” in theoretical physics, all of this left great spaces for our imagination - one of the most primitive and powerful form of artistic creativity. This imagination of otherliness or the courage of it is the only wings to break through the prison built by rationalism, materialism world views. Here “Lightning Struck” works as a reminder of our human beings’ courage and capacity to imagine the otherliness.
