The Garden of Forking Paths
October 4 – October 27, 2013

Tiger Strikes Asteroid welcomes you to our October exhibition, The Garden of Forking Paths. The show features the work of TSA member Terri Saulin Frock.  This is her second solo exhibition with the gallery. Please join us for the Opening Reception Friday October 4, 2013, 6-10pm

"The Garden of Forking Paths is an incomplete, but not false, image of the universe as Ts’ui Pên conceived it. In contrast to Newton and Schopenhauer, your ancestor did not believe in a uniform, absolute time. He believed in an infinite series of times, in a growing, dizzying net of divergent, convergent and parallel times. This network of times which approached one another, forked, broke off, or were unaware of one another for centuries, embraces all possibilities of time. We do not exist in the majority of these times; in some you exist, and not I; in others I, and not you; in others, both of us. In the present one, which a favorable fate has granted me, you have arrived at my house; in another, while crossing the garden, you found me dead; in still another, I utter these same words, but I am a mistake, a ghost.”

- Jorge Luis Borges

Saulin Frock considers The Garden of Forking Paths a chapter in an endeavor that has been developing over the past ten years.  As drawings and objects accumulate, they function as “visual counterpoint," layering information to produce an imagined time-lapse view/code of a world. The vocabulary of forms is culled from a variety of sources such as maps of her urban garden, home renovation, travels abroad, the writings of Jorge Luis Borges, and Glenn Gould's "Goldberg Variations: The Well Tempered Clavier."
