JOUR FIXE with Roman Kirschner
Poetics of fluidification
POETICS OF FLUIDIFICATION
The fluidification of truths and world views makes our heads spin. And those who are not dizzy are not informed well. But if one takes a closer look at information, it gets clear that on a low, material level it is a process in which forms are continuously being transferred into materials and sometimes quickly disappear again. However, this happens on a very small scale. Together we shall have a look at parts of my work and some examples of artists and scientists working with similar transformations in more directly perceivable dimensions and their potential poetics.
