book "Theatrum Scientiarum"

a companion volume to the graphic installation " Theatrum Scientiarum"

(edition 10 books)





The small book “Theatrum Scientiarum” is a companion volume to the graphic installation with the same name. Like the lithographic artwork it can be explained as an effort to generate a dialogue between art and science. It contains reflections dealing with the topic of the increasing level of technology in our everyday life in addition to an apparent approximation between the technological and the biological concept spheres. These reflections are attended by demonstrative illustrations which combines cutouts and prints on transparent paper.

The book is a digital print in the size of 15 x 21 cm.

... lichtloser abend

von ferne her verhallen züge

am lichtknopf der im flur versagt

und brandig riecht das klopfen der uhr

: das ist die große mitternacht

in der wir unsere wächsernen

gesichter vergeblich
