Landscapes, production processes and experimental arrangements result in a world of “social Surrealism” (Mika Rottenberg). Wobbly silicon cylinders, models of atoms made from plastic balls, melting foam and a model of spaghetti and marshmallows abstract the physical world. In a kaleidoscopic zoetrope, they intermingle with images of the Siberian plateau, traditional singers and the inner worlds of the Geneva particle accelerator. A symphony of images from mechanical, material and invisible worlds.
