As It Is Inside So It Is Outside is in effect about how everything, human and non-human, flourishes, proliferates and creates links beyond the conditions of everyday life. And yet, the project is also about finding the “edge of the world” in the everyday — as another MJA box recipient described his experience with oracles. The discovery that the limit of the world rests on the edge of mundane things, its unsuspected borders, that the outside of the world already exists potentially in the mundane. This is why art matters: as a practice that tries to unfold and detach the limits of the everyday.
