How divine

A path, a journey, call it what you like, but it's my life.


Vincent Fournier - Post Natural History (2013)

"An encyclopedic board of the future, between memory and projection, where different living species are modified to meet changing environments and new desires of man.The project’s desire is to explore the new opportunities of performance and evolution and to catch this space between memory and an imagined future.

'These are stories of possible scenarios in which different living species are modified to better fit our environment as well as to adapt to new human desires.'”

Sheep sculptures made from rotary telephones | Jean-Luc Cornec

Someone could take all your old phones and ship them off to China for recycling, or a good artist might come up with a clever re-use like making sheep. These are Jean-Luc Cornec’s telephone sheep from the Museum of Telecommunication in Frankfurt.

Tomás Saraceno | in orbit

Suspended more than 25 meters above the piazza of the K21 is Tomás Saraceno‘s gigantic installation in orbit. This steel wire construction spans the museum‘s vast glass cupola on three different levels. Positioned within this net structure, which encompasses altogether 2500 m², are half a dozen „spheres“ – inflated PVC spheres having diameters up to 8.5 meters. Visitors have access to this transparent installation, and can move freely between the spheres on all three levels. in orbit resembles a surreal landscape, is reminiscent of a sea of clouds. Those bold enough to clamber high into the work set beneath the glass cupola perceive the museum visitors far below them from the lofty heights as tiny figures in a model world. Viewed from below or from intermediate levels of the Ständehaus, conversely, the people enmeshed in this net seem to be swimming in the sky.
