Alicja Kwade - Casual Emergence (May 2022), 2020

Starting price 20.000 EUR

 Show bid increments

26.000 EUR

Causal Emergence illustrates a specific amount of time, exactly one month: The clock-hands are oriented in a logarithmic spiral, starting from the center at 12 o’clock midnight in the beginning of the month. Every hour following another is represented by one clock-hand. Recalling familiar illustrations of a logarithmic spiral, the work references an order found in nature: growth (e.g. snail shells), storms, galaxies – the golden ratio. „Spiral Mirabilis“, as described by Descartes and Bernoulli, makes the cumulated time readable in all directions, illustrating time as a non-linear dimension.
