Lotus Power II

The work Lotus Power II is concerned with the medium of the image and in particular with nature as an image, which seems to reinforce the image’s own polarity of closeness and distance.

It can be imagined as a projection surface of the desire for entirety, which, however, is not achieved by abandoning civilization, but rather in this in-between, in the pictorial.

This principle is reinforced in the work by an algorithmic search for digital natural impressions, whereby the binary code functions as a contemporary symbol of dualism. The urge to gain knowledge and control by dividing and objectifying the world and at the same time to establish an image of entireness is not only in the idea of the Anthropocene inherent in man.

The organic oscillates visually and physically in the geometric, the concrete, in content and form, blurs in the abstract.
