“The Erotic Night: Dark Energy as an Aesthetic in Contemporary Art” 


 Dr. Lisa Streitfeld

The internal electromagnetic journey of energy in the body reflected in Night is the interior/exterior process of a new symbol for philosophy: the Mobius strip. This paper reveals the outcome of a decade-long process tracking artists devoted to penetrating the night by way of quantum leap through a critical application of the Uncertainty Principle. The contrast of one artist using Night as a canvas and the other using the canvas as Night, with a third creating a MEME for the kundalini energy in the body creates an opening to a discussion of the THIRD. This invisible energy made visible in art has resulted in a theory of a 21st century modernism, interpreted through the dynamic erotic attraction of opposites. A contemporary dialectic exploring the human connection to Night is a metaphor for the collective surrender to the mystery of the unknown. The quantum leap into cyclical time will be presented as engaging a new aesthetic formalism of kairos, along with the role of astrology in a holistic understanding of the universe.
