Christian Waldvogel. Unknown
The Orders of Randomness
Distributed for Scheidegger and Spiess
With Essays by Christian Waldvogel and Daniel Morgenthaler and Conversations with Jack van Loon, Ben Moore, Jakob Pernthaler und Jean-Pierre de Vera
Waldvogel’s story of genesis and the beginning of life on earth has been transformed into Christian Waldvogel. Unknown. Following an equally random order, Waldvogel discusses the chapters of this universal narrative with a range of experts—a cosmologist and astrophysicist, a cell biologist and gravitational researcher, a microbiologist, and an exobiologist working in planetary research—to reveal an unusual perspective on how the earth may have come into existence. Finally, the exhibition’s curator, Daniel Morgenthaler, asks what art can tell science. With nearly 150 color and black-and-white images, this book offers a new look at how art and science contribute to our view of both the world and the universe.
