16.11.2008 – 18.01.2009
Solo Exhibition

Museum gegenstandsfreier Kunst, Otterndorf
Germany

The architectural space of the exhibition room of the Museum gegenstandsfreier Kunst has been drawn or created by a rendering in its cubature. The work is to show the space of the gallery in its numbers and sign systems as written html-code. The whole form of the exhibition space as a xml-svg code on the walls shows the exact exhibition space, its volume, including doors and windows etc. If one would take all the numbers and write them into the computer system, it would lead again to the exact drawing of the 3 dimensional space, the rendered image of the space.
The viewer can read the colored numbers or see them as patterns on the wall. He can read a coded language, that refers to the actual space, a drawing in the space which at the same time is a drawing of the space.
