According to Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, we can live in a world of humans wherein space and time should be equated with living in a cave. The light of the fire that causes the shadows and the echoes of the voices of the people on the other side of the wall can be seen as the temporal variants of the entities – the blueprints. For Boronski, this is equivalent to the daily flow of news images and other sounds from the media and social media. These images and sounds create a semblance of reality in which we all interact.
The pain and effort the prisoners have to make to free themselves from their chains symbolize the prolonged thinking about the Good. This requires much discipline, as the temptation must be resisted to succumb to earthly desires. For Boronski, the effort made by the prisoners symbolizes the courage and discipline to choose your own path, a process wherein you create an independent mind and a new reality once again.
And that’s what it’s all about according to Boronski; creating your own reality! And not that of our daily culture wherein we let ourselves be led by dominance and images and sounds that reach us via social media. Here too, the process is central; the search for our own reality that you also see reflected in the works of Boronski. On the question of what that own reality then is, you will get no answer from Boronski. After all, the intention is that you go and seek that reality yourself and will eventually also find it. His work provides at most the necessary inspiration.
