Object/sculpture (2024)

Hommage to an insect´s eye

The object merges the visual apparatus of insects and birds with flame sensors and high-end wafer technology.

The metal sculpture is inspired by an ultraviolet sensor for the 185 to 260 nanometer range, has been enlarged 35 times and extended with a wafer inlay and has lost its sensor function. In the organ of sight, as well as in wafer and flame detector technology, invisible UV radiation is a parameter for survival. While their sense of sight enables animals to find food under sun-generated UV radiation of up to 300 nm, technical applications of UV at 13.5 nm for the production of wafers pursue paradoxical goals. Wafers shimmer like parts of an insect's eye, they serve civilian and military AI and the most potential AI may win the war.
