With a longing gaze mankind is looking to the horizon.
A place of hope, the destination of the pursuit of happiness, the unexplored frontier, a symbol for the unknown, calculable but not existent, a non-place, located in a utopia, unreachable yet so close. With each step the horizon moves ahead, always with us, always away from us.
The horizon is the last limitation, it forms the threshold between the visible and the invisible, reality and fantasy, between immanence and transcendence. It is the purview of the individual reality of every human being where nothingness lies across. We're not able to look behind the curtain which covers the world beyond our world. But if we change our prospect transcending the horizon becomes possible.
AM—XX is the attempt to trespass the limiting sphere and to observe the unobservable.
