∆NIM∆ - poetic introduction

If you look at the sphere, you realize the shape of the universe:
the shared idea of the cosmos respiring chaos.
This is where the ∆NIM∆ arises:
from the swirl of matter and energy.

The animated prospect leads you through the remoted galaxies to the own one.
Suns and planets are but the sand grains in your discerning eye.
You cannot discern between the visions any longer:
Is it artistic, scientific, spiritual?

If you take a deep breath, you can dive into your solar system:
It´s like a fragile solar plexus of the Milky Way;
a blow to this region would get the wind knocked out of it
your world would stop to breathe.

However, the animated matter continues to emerge
and end up in ever-new spiral rotations.

The coincidence of the real and virtual
requires a large narrative on a micro logical scale:
The history and structure of nature and culture thus become the medium of art.
The art becomes the medium of knowledge.

The spherical shapes of the distributed worlds stand out from the surroundings,
while adhering to the dynamic structure:
You apprehend the character and content of an artwork,
which is both free-floating and anchored in a created reflective space.

Blow your mind in concert with others.
To be moved by the other means to allow a dynamic that defines a new, common course. Human, habitat, health and heritage can be thought through
with their cluster-like social models and survival strategies.

This is where ∆NIM∆ arises: It is artistic, scientific, and spiritual.

Imagine the model of an immortal organism
that reproduces the maintenance and renewal
of the life cycle in itself.

If you zoom onto your planet, it may evoke the emergence
and formation of a lung, associated with the formation
and transformation of the living structures
consisting of resembling spherical shapes.

Zoom into the lung of Nature with its bronchial tree
built out of the alveoli clusters;
∆NIM∆ appears as a “breath” in the model of the alveoli,
the small cavities in the lungs
in which the actual gas exchange takes place during breathing.

Follow the path of grape-shaped aerosol clusters
and fade into the processes that contribute decisively
to the human life as a literally pervasive principle.

∆NIM∆: the soul, the breath, the breeze, the air, and the wind:
it is the principle that pervades all life
in which the micro- and macrocosm meet.

∆NIM∆ is neither material nor an immaterial substance;
it is neither composed nor undivided.
It takes the age-old idea as an opportunity
to investigate the extent to which it can serve as a model.

The history of your travel has changed its pace and rhythm,
ending with the universe of a single aerosol.

If you now look at the sphere, you realize the shape of an aerosol.
You realize in it the shape of the universe
– the shared idea of the cosmos respiring chaos.

∆NIM∆ - basic concept

∆NIM∆: the soul, the breath, the breath, the air, the wind – it is the principle that pervades all life in which the micro- and macrocosm meet.
∆NIM∆ is neither material nor an immaterial substance, it is neither composed nor undivided. As such, it points to a shared experience that seems to be equally anchored in the real and virtual world.
∆NIM∆ arises from the artistic, spiritual and scientific vision of a world in which living beings co-produce a peaceful and just coexistence with their environment. It stimulates through its transformative and transversal aesthetics, dynamic and responsive as well as proactive perspective the discussion about current and future challenges and solution models for a common behavior in dealing with natural and cultural resources.

∆NIM∆ art project takes the age-old idea of the same name as an opportunity to investigate the extent to which it can serve as a model for dealing with today’s ecological structures, sustainability concepts and democratization processes.
∆NIM∆ circumscribes the relationship between natural and cultural heritage artistically implemented as a complex of generative sculptures designed for the public space.
∆NIM∆ is a place of activity dedicated to the links between humans, health, heritage and habitat. It is both a homage and a prospect to their uncertain histories and futures.

∆NIM∆ appears as “air” and wind in the model of aerosols, microscopic particles with the microorganisms adhering to them.
∆NIM∆ appears as “breath” in the model of the alveoli, the small cavities in the lungs in which the actual gas exchange takes place during breathing.
∆NIM∆ appears as a “life principle” in the model of an organism evoking human habitat.

∆NIM∆ as “air”: The natural aerosols and those produced by humans are of central importance for the chemistry and physics of the atmosphere, for the biosphere and for the climate. They are distributed around the world, for example, on their way from Africa to Europe or to South America as a “natural fertilizer” in the rainforest. Thanks to their size, they also effortlessly penetrate human alveoli and reach our bloodstream. They hence have an immediate impact on our health. Because they are almost formless, the aerosols take on almost any shape, because they are omnipresent and almost imperceptible.
∆NIM∆ as “breath”: Like their counterparts from the air, the aerosols, the alveoli also form grape-shaped clusters from their almost round, microscopic individual particles and contribute decisively to human life as a literally pervasive principle.
∆NIM∆ a “life principle”: It appears in models of potentially biological organisms that reproduce the maintenance and renewal of the life cycle in itself.

∆NIM∆ - Grundkonzept

∆NIM∆: die Seele, das Atem, der Hauch, die Luft, der Wind – es ist das alles Leben durchdringende Prinzip, in dem der Mikro- und Makrokosmos aufeinandertreffen. ∆NIM∆ sei weder stofflich noch sei sie eine immaterielle Substanz, sie sei weder zusammengesetzt noch ungeteilt. Das Kunstprojekt ∆NIM∆ nimmt die gleichnamige uralte Vorstellung zum Anlass, der Frage nachzugehen, inwieweit sie als Modell für den Umgang mit heutigen ökologischen Strukturen, Nachhaltigkeitskonzepten und Demokratisierungsprozessen dienen kann.

Das Verhältnis zwischen der Natur- und Kulturerbe ist ein Themenkomplex, das die Künstlerin mit den generativen Skulpturen, einer PWA (progressive web application) und in anderen künstlerischen Erscheinungsformaten an Wirkungsstätten umsetzt, welche sich dezidiert der Verknüpfung von Mensch, Gesundheit, Erbe und Lebensraum verschreibt.

∆NIM∆ nimmt als Grundkonzept drei Erscheinungsformen:
1_als „Luft“ und Wind im Model der Aerosole, mikroskopisch kleinen Teilchen mit den daran haftenden Mikroorganismen.
2_als „Atem“ im Model der Alveolen oder Lungenbläschen, der kleinen Hohlräume der Lunge, in denen der eigentliche Gasaustausch bei der Atmung stattfindet, und
3_als „Lebensprinzip“ im Model eines Organismus evozierenden humanen Lebensraum.

1_Die natürlichen und auch seit der Industrialisierung vom Menschen produzierten Aerosole sind von zentraler Bedeutung für die Chemie und Physik der Atmosphäre, für die Biosphäre sowie für das Klima. Sie verteilen sich weltweit gelangen zum Beispiel auf ihrem Weg von Afrika nach Europa oder nach Südamerika als „natürlicher Dünger“ in den Regenwald. Dank ihrer Größe dringen Sie auch mühelos in menschliche Lungenbläschen oder Alveolen ein und gelingen bis in unseren Blutkreislauf. Damit nehmen sie auch einen Einfluss auf unsere Gesundheit. Weil nahezu formlos, nehmen die Aerosole beinahe jede Form an, weil omnipräsent entziehen sie sich nahezu jeder Wahrnehmung.

2_Wie ihre Pendants aus der Luft, die Aerosole, auch die Alveolen bilden traubenförmige Cluster aus ihrer nahezu runden, mikroskopisch kleinen Einzelpartikeln und tragen dem menschlichen Leben als ein buchstäblich durchdringendes Prinzip entscheidend bei.

3_ANIMA erscheint schließlich als „Lebensprinzip“ selbst im Model eines potentiell biologisch unsterblichen Organismus, das die Aufrechterhaltung und Erneuerung des Lebenszyklus an sich selbst reproduziert.
