Weighing air – Lucht wegen
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.
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.
