More than the ability to solve problems, philosophy gives us the tools to generate concepts and propositions that pose new questions. It is a matter of speculation rather than decision. This process of speculation not only changes the ways we view the world, ideally, it should also alter our everyday experience, enriching it with new aspects that were previously ignored.
The Kalogoscope, pictured below, is my attempt to envision an apparatus that brings different aspects of reality into focus: the macro and micro, the whole and the parts, the present and the future. The perspective that it generates is not definitive, but one among many, to be linked with others as we work together to compose a common world.
