The Portal - or ‘Beeg Pea’ as it has
become affectionately known -
was discovered in 2015
by S.R. Little and J. Phinn while they were
studying at Chelsea College of Art & Design.


When on a dissertation research trip
in the farthest reaches of the Chelsea tunnels:
the underground network that connects
UAL alumni with free sandwiches in the Card Room,
Little and Phinn experienced
a peculiar sensation
on the backs of their arms:


the distinct feeling of the soft side of velcro
(gently coarse, firm, with a light grain and the slightest tickle)
as they moved through a hitherto
unmapped portion of the catacombs.
 

Shortly afterwards,

they were transported to an undisclosed forested region.
The forest was a sea of sharp, pointed cyprus,
like the jagged back teeth of a great white shark,
ascending towards the horizon,
or as if a leash of giant green foxes
had all burrowed beneath the earth
and taken to a long slumber,
with their tails stood erect above the soil.
 

They decided this would be a good place
to build a studio.

About three weeks later,
Little Phinn switched on their GPS
and discovered the "region" was actually
about ten minutes due south from the M25,
and about 1 hour 26 min drive
from central London on a good day with no traffic.

So they chartered an Uber and made it home.

 

Building Freyron studio around the Portal
became their year-long undertaking and obsession.
They used uniquely crafted materials
to supplement their research and development,
whilst also making facilities
to augment their practice and research.

Little Phinn soon observed phenomena
occurring around the portal,
and with their team,
made the discovery of the
Freyron particle.

The Portal simultaneously transports and contains an undisclosed reality completely abstract in nature. Some philosophers have posited that the Portal allows one to move through macro (material) and micro (spatial) layers of perception, whilst others believe the Portal is related to Kant’s “noumenon”: “a posited object or event that is known (if at all) without the use of ordinary sense-perception. [...] the noumenal world may exist, but it is completely unknowable through human sensation. In Kantian philosophy, the unknowable noumenon is often linked to the unknowable “thing-in’itself” or Ding an sich.”

Religious fanatics believe the Portal to be the driving force behind the 2012 “creative restoration” of Ecce Homo by one Cecilia Gimenez, the 83-year-old Spanish widow and amateur painter, though experts find no conclusive evidence of the connection between the two.

Essentially, the phenomena observed surrounding the Portal can be seen as the antithesis or the polar opposite of the noumena within.

Research continues to be conducted.
