chromosom X collision

Part Of The Whole



To visualize a refined approach on perception CROMOSOM X COLLISION.PART OF THE WHOLE is a painting project which reconsiders the common perception in society. The painting works on a symbolic level which questions the information process, reality and the interaction of matter and organisms.


By definition perception is the ability to see, hear or to become aware of something through the senses (a). It is the ability to embrace ones environment, ambience and reality (b). It is not only for artists the most important tool to become sensible of the interactions between reality and consciousness, but for every member of a community. Perception includes next to reception an individual world view, which is a mental construction of the environment living in, and the kind of information one receives (c). Perception is not a static construction. It changes with the development and growth of ones sensitivity, knowledge and ability, also by the way to see the world through different lenses. The art world as well as the world of sciences need to question their common perception in relation to their specialised approach to the world. Pure art and pure sciences will always stay in their »boxes« and will mostly be acclaimed by there specialists with good reasons: Human evolution would never have been developed so fast at all. But as Aristotle annotated, the whole equals more than the sum of its parts, so there is no other challenge to add together the copious humane knowledge erupted in the first decades of the 21st century. One of this challenges is the integration of the knowledge of quantum physics in every day life. Not only in technical issues but also in questions of the interactions between matter and mind. Since nearly hundred years quantum effects are observable and the influence of human consciousness in quantum experiments is known. Its impacts are measurable and points out, that perception is not only working in one direction (from outside the body into the inside). Conscious perception is a trigger for an active participation in society. Living in a global and a local environment at one go, it depends on ones sensory capabilities how much of all can and will be reviewed. Mass media and social media channels developed a phenomenally broad and deep information stream. This stream of information increases the knowledge of the society in a way never before. In 2013 big data generated quantitatively as much information as the whole human kind before (about 4 400 000 000 terabyte). Since 2013 daily 2.5 terabyte data are afresh added in the world wide web. This amount of information cause disturbance in the common global system construction, the global collective consciousness, and the global ecology. It confronts everyone with a super-sized perception stream beyond the individual perception. The basic level of individual perception refers mainly on seeing, hearing and reading. The human brain uses nearly a third of its conscious activity to process visual information. And the tendency of the conscious brain activity is to queue the rest of sensory body information behind images and text. That reduces not only the personal but also the collective world view and its loss is enormous.  A very important part of perception is the interpretation of the perceptional information of ones environment as a part of a consecutive process of reality creation. The mental construction which constitutes all interpretations to one wolrd view, is not only decisive by the ambience, but also by the information stream from the DNA, epigenetic data’s and from the body retaining information system itself. The majority of this perception streams are handled in the subconsciousness and frees the consciousness to interact with the ambience.

Information waves

One theory of information is the mathematical study of the coding of data in the form of sequences of symbols, impulses, etc. and of how rapidly such information can be transmitted, for example through computer circuits or telecommunication channels. The transmission of information depends on waves. Waves can be a long body of water curling into an arched form breaking on the shore, or the ridge of water between two depressions in open water, a sudden occurrence of or increase in a phenomenon, feeling or emotion. A gesture or signal made by moving ones hand to and fro. A slightly curling lock of hair. A periodic disturbance of particles of a substance which may be propagated without movement of the particles, such as in the passage of undulating motion, heat, or sound. A single curve in the course of a periodic disturbance of the particles of a substance. A periodic variation of an electromagnetic field in the propagation of light or other radiation through a medium or vacuum.


It must be reconsidered that the combination of reality and perception is the only way to define consciousness and the flow of information in one´s being. As well as the reconsideration of the definition of  individual and collective perception. The network around the globe enables a  knowledgebase perception which deactivates some more filters, but a far more questions are arising. Does the perception not hear this questions before? Or did she let talk the high spee information channels first? She did. But she didn´t talk about the main point. We are dealing with an informationowerflow which destabalzes the social system. It is more than a loud cry to overhear the challenges in times with migration and culture clash exchanges. There is no other way to llisten to the endless stories which life is writing about.

the grid of chromsom x collision

The grid is evolved from a sinus wave and displays a frozen resonance from an arising x-chromosom. Each single painting has the size of 80 x 130 cm and is organised in a grid from A1 to P16.
