Many Have Gone On These Bends

Ruth Anderwald + Leonhard Grond

The idea of making a hybrid, interrupting the process halfway, is very uncomfortable. It means opening the cocoon before the moth has matured.

What you see here is a hybrid in many perspectives, and this short text is an attempt to highlight a few of them. As we ourselves are in between states here, this might not lead to a clearer understanding of the artwork. The pictures in Many Have Gone On These Bends show one and the same moment in time viewed from four different positions. These perspectives are depicted by four different media: a photo camera; a 3D programme showing the vectors composing a model; the same computer model layered with the 3D photograph taken by 100 cameras that photographed the person at the same instant; and the printed statue in the hands of the dealer.
