41/415 IV is the fourth part of a compositional and/or installation series I started in the middle of 2012. All the four 41/415 are multimedia pieces,in the sense that these consist of many mediums that are all necessary for the multi layers of translational processes that these series are aiming for. The continuum plays an important key role in the series of 41/415 plays, which started as an inner-structure continuum in the first part of 41/415 (in the form of many different timeframes, as rhythms and visual motifs that were present through the 10 minute length of the piece) and transformed into a more mythic and timeless continuum in the second part of the piece by the presence of enigmatic scribbles and drawings in the installation context of it. In the third part of 41/415 I intentionally place the context of the piece in a more mythic and universal timeframe by introducing another timescale, a macro one , that includes the artistic process that evolve outside time and can be understood as the time distance between the creation and performance of all 4 parts of 41/415 and also the possibility of a time continuum that has yet not happened and most possibly include next versions of it, that will differ from the previous by the impact of the same continuum. And that macro time scale dynamically and karmically change the piece in time. Out of that Time comes 41/415 IV as an another event in the Collective time i described above leaving open the possibility for another 41/415 V in some point in time . It is important to note that these pieces are being triggered as events in the macro-time in a more or less Synchronicity way and not in any way randomly .
