°ABOUT

“Sometimes, it felt like the inner workings of the universe made visible. It revolved slowly, then grew in complexity until it seemed, in substance if not style, like a collaboration between da Vinci, Picasso and Stephen Hawking.”

That’s why I would like us to be able to extend this tiny window, these eighty years, a little. So that I can understand a little more of this play.”

Peter Weibel, Karlsruhe, 2002
