Our Place in Space — Kosmische Zwangsläufigkeiten #2
The work Kosmische Zwangsläufigkeiten #2 was conceived by the artist couple Payer Gabriel. At the centre of their observations are events that resist any plannability. The work is based on the hypothesis of the biochemist and Nobel Prize winner Christian de Duve that life is subject to necessity: Life inevitably arises when (accidentally) certain conditions are fulfilled. Even intelligence and consciousness thus become inevitable forms of expression of all matter. Consequently, life in all its complexity must evolve throughout the universe.
This installation was created for the Hubble travelling exhibition Our Place in Space in Vienna.Credit:
