REM - A trip to hidden spaces
My occupation with space and its hybrid structural levels led me
to bionics (= derivation of complex connections and non-linear
effects in nature).
Viewed through the microscope, images appear which do not seem to
have any familiar structures, but remind us of dreamlike forms we
know from the REM sleep phase (rapid eye movement).
The more one delves into spaces hidden to the unaided eye with the
REM (raster electron microscope), the more intense the memory.
After magnifying a one-celled organism 5000 times, the image
"tips," revealing formations reminiscent of large, complex
structures such as coral reefs. The silicate of diatoms and
radiolaria has formed the basis of clay-rich areas since the
Precambrian, and simultaneously symbolizes the digital age.
The μ-sized one-celled plants and animals are surrounded by many
forms of silicon shells whose structure has not yet been able to be
|My desire to transform these round images into
three-dimensional forms grew as I looked into the REM. Extremely
high magnifications create astonishing pictures of living systems.
These worlds, i.e. non-linear orders, enable a view in the future
The 40 cm high terracottas are dynamically grouped in three
color-groups on various spatial levels.
Using circles and spheres as their bases, these hollow forms have
textures on the outside which remind one of imprints of industrial
metal chassis, sensors, and grid structures.
