I Am a Unity That Is Multiple and a Multiplicity That Is One is an actual object, that draws my attention; draws attention to surface, boundedness, volume, weight, intersection, layering, the quantity and quality of a thing – the spatial and temporal. What is going on here? There is sensation, movement, affect, in me; between me and the object; what is the nexus between me, the object and space? “I am a unity that is multiple and a multiplicity that is one…” (Henri Bergson, 1910) encapsulates a sense that I am one body, yet there are many sensory and other inputs that comprise me and my experience/activity in this multi-layered and networked world.
