My Gene, It has Five Corners...

Fri, March 30, 2007 7:00 pm CEST

Diverse works by artists Gerard Caris, Wolfgang Herbold, Andreas Horlitz, Karsten K. Panzer PerZan, Hermann Josef Roth, and Julian Voss-Andreae, which illuminate the fields of art and science from a variety of artistic perspectives, will be shown in the Project Space 01, parallel to the exhibition "Mischa Kuball: ReMix/Broca II (Letters/Numbers)."

In his work, Caris concentrates on the regular pentagon, which finds use in drawing, sculpture, architecture, and design.
As a starting point for his work, Herbold takes pictures from the everyday and scientific worlds and transforms them digitally.
Horlitz’s interests, on the other hand, are directed at the complex forms of text and signs; he transforms genetic codes and brainwaves into aesthetic objects.
PerZan, for his part, develops 3D color systems based on the genetic code of DNA and the ancient Chinese texts of the I Ching.
Similar to Roth’s documenting of the useful aesthetics of molecular structures, Voss-Andreae reveals how proteins, which are otherwise understood only intellectually, can be experienced sensually.

Artist Talk On 31 March 2007, at 4 p.m., a discussion on »Art and Science« will take place at the ZKM_Lecture hall with the artists participating in the exhibition as well as Mischa Kuball, Peter Weibel, and Gregor Jansen.
