Psycho-Chemistry and Bio-Phantasie

The otto-motor can possibly be seen as the most wide spread result of reductionism which is based on natural science. The western culture of fixation on objects  has found a complex expression: the elements of the motor stay all in their places, rotate around their own axis and hence take care for personal emancipation of the moving individuals by mobilising. 
The development of the otto-motor is not thinkable without a western imprinted tradition of blue printing, which has its programmatical strength in drawing up of schematical connections. Imaginary and definitly this technic of drawing takes place on flats and with the flat departure from space starts. Because only the flat separates the distanceless imprinted subject from everrpresent affections of its immediate environment and makes it free for blue prints. Without this ability the subject could not emancipate itself to become a person. Bio-phantasy and psycho-chemistry becoemes a flat-installation, in which poeto-logical and aesthetical speculations about term and imagination of a human have assumed shape in drawing and in material. In connection with this follows a physio-cubistic gadget  in which processes of color blends can take place: plastical all-over painting so-to-say.
A large part of the art has been dealing since some time until today with the subject of the human as a wonderful complex and spiritual machine with soul. Because besides all humanistic motivated efforts for compensation (for instance a drive into nature  with the car) one , possible disturbing, question stays relevant: is everything (only) mechanism?
