Jack Madden: The Individual no.7

Click on the image to enlarge.

With this work I challenge others to think about how they fit into an indifferent universe. Does its emptiness provide a canvas where change is possible or are we in perfect equilibrium? By hand-painting a human figure on a rice grain the viewer is confronted by the limits of their own scale to see the image and by the scale at which the human is represented in the larger universe. Even though the figure is small and alone in a vast emptiness they are capable of standing out and creating visible change

Individual no. 7 was sent to the International Space Station in February. As an artist and scientist, I make work about developing a human connection to the scientific questions I research.


Jan Barel: Stairwell

“The photos of Stairwell show reflections caused by sunshine through the stained glass window on the landing of the building where I have my studio. These reflections are visible for approximately 10/15 minutes and continuously change color and shape before slowly fading.
Only occasionally did I see this phenomenon, but when it happened, it was only in November and February. The photos I’ve taken over the years were all a matter of chance: the sun didn’t always shine, I wasn’t there every day”.

1 carob seed, 1 carat pure gold
This work is part of the project The First Carob Tree of Naarden-Vesting.
In the past the seeds of the carob tree were used for precision measurements.
1 seed weighs exactly as much as 1 carat of gold.
Keration is the Old-Greek word for fruit of the carob tree.
