The garden installation

On earthy ground lies the metal plate of a QR code. Grass is sown between the QR code gaps. The arrangement of the pixel squares forms the shape of a butterfly for the human eye. This stands iconically for the world of insects. The grass grows out of the QR code gaps. But the longer the blades of grass grow and push through the open spaces of the code, the more unrecognizable and illegible the code becomes. At some point, the grass is cut back and the process begins again.

One experiences the magenta-colored butterfly code changeably, sometimes it is overgrown, sometimes clearly recognizable. The connection between nature and culture seems to convey an additional piece of information to us here. Namely the fact that hybrids, if they have living parts, change in favor of one or the other part! In this case in favor of the nature outlasting all culture.

The audio composition

Via the QR code, shown on the adjacent work panel, the visitor can access the sound composition via smartphone/tablet. Take a “microscopic look” into the sound microcosm of insect voices!

The animal voices form the basis of the artfully designed sound compositions by Sabine Schäfer. The compositions change regularly!
Listening through headphones is recommended.

One of the most effective and revolutionary techniques concerning reduction and concentration is to focus on the world of things as a source material, in order to penetrate to the essence of things and ultimately bring about a profusion of new creations. Employing consistent focussing, art has always opened the door to perceptions of transhuman existences, and generated an aesthetics of hybrids that today frequently pursues a rhizomatic logic and algorithmic form.

The most consistent result of the mechanization of our apparatus of perception is probably the reduction to the digital state of being / non-being.

Three artistic approaches make reference to this by varying the viewer’s perspective and scaling it, between technological apparatus and sensory organ, into the object. The artwork assumes the role of transmitter, leading the apparatus, and distilling the potentials of transhuman formation back into the human realm of the perceivable, leaving faint notions of the grandeur of universal being and its manifold subtexts.

It is in such a spirit that Astrid Hansen, Birgit Spahlinger and Sabine Schäfer not only penetrate a sort of ‘ground’ through their own media-based focussing, but also create reasons for information, perception and existence.

One of the most effective and revolutionary techniques of reduction and concentration is to focus on the world of things as source material in order to penetrate to the essence of things and finally to bring forth many kinds of new creations. By means of consistent focusing, art has always opened the gates of perception to transhuman being, generating an aesthetic of the hybrid that currently often follows a rhizomatic logic and an algorithmic form.

The most consistent result of the mechanization of our perceptual apparatus is probably the reduction to a being/non-being situation of the digital.

Three artistic positions refer to this by varying the viewer’s point of view and scaling it between technical apparatus and sensual organ right into the object. The artwork thereby assumes the role of transmitter, it leads the apparatuses, distillates and transhuman formation potentials back into the human realm of the perceptible, leaving behind a quiet inkling of the sublimity of universal being and its manifold subtexts.

In this sense, Astrid Hansen, Birgit Spahlinger and Sabine Schäfer not only penetrate to a kind of ‘ground’ through a medial focusing, each in their own way, but they create justifications of information, perception and existence.
