Self Set 2 (CSM)

This is a sum up of research-to-outcome done for the Self Set 2 Brief within Unit 10 – following Prof P. R advice here, to “just keep writing, about everything you do.“

So, all this started with the thought of how the medical human body is perceived differently in Western and Eastern Medicine. I was also looking into Medieval Medicine which was always connected to the Spiritual and Astrological.

The Astrological/Anatomical Man

The Eye of Horus (the second and third image is a collection from the British Museum), is an ancient symbol – the god Horus lost his left eye in a battle, but it got cured; – the symbol stands i. a. for healing and health.


Chinese Medicine Packaging

(The body as a machine)

Savings from articles, books etc.:

Always, Reason vs. Emotion.


Feedback 1

Feedback from friends

Looking into all of this, the initial brief was titled Body East-West, sticking to focusing on perceptions of the medical body. This research let to how the body is now seen as a machine that needs to function in order for “the self” to function, so moving away from the east-west comparison, but rather focusing on how as an ex. in the medieval times (example in images) looked at the body (ex. brain in the stomach, 4 body fluids that need to be in balance etc.); and from a contemporary point of view are obviously wrong; what I want to say is that when looking at those things now when they are proven to be wrong, how clearly they seem wrong, with a tension to look at them as being unintelligent. How can this reaction be recreated; nowadays – with the scientifically fully discovered and examined human body be re-created? I came back to the research of “body as a machine”, looking at illustrations by Fritz Kahn’s “Der Mensch als Industriepalast” (Man as an industrial palace) done in early 20C – around 50 years after the Second Industrial Revolution. At that point, the idea was to illustrate in the form of an infographic, how in the future machine world (feedback from week 1: artificial intelligence; “computers will soon become more intelligent that us”, 1HB (human brain) will be smaller than the processing power of a computer in the year 2040), in a world where machines with artificial intelligence live, to make an infographic for machines to understand the human body. This piece/infographic would be made by a machine, for a machine.

This is a project that started out just recently actually. A chair, kind of – and again. It pretty much started with already having materials, such as the sponge that I used for Flowerfield 2. It works in combination with different elements, one of them being the sponges (yes, I was asked if I was doing a massive cleaning project when buying them). Other elements are a chair that belonged to my grandma and her sister, it was always placed in front of the house which is where they used to just be and sit a lot. Another element is a photo taken by my mum of  the house where she grew up, my grandparents house. One more element are leaves, places in the square area under the seat – just that you wouldn’t really see them when you sit on the chair – a bit like “what you seek is seeking you”-ish. If the chair is placed differently or simply moved to a different place, the leaves obviously get moved as well and placed in a different way as well. (These were just some simple thoughts from the beginning of the project.)

Fettstuhl, Joseph Beuys, 1964
The fat on the “Fat Chair” is not geometric, as in the “Fat Corners” but keeps something of its chaotic character. The ends of the wedges read like a cross section cut through the nature of fat. I placed it on the chair to emphasize this, since here the chair represents a kind of human anatomy, the area of digestive and excretive warmth processes, sexual organs and interesting chemical change, relating psychologically to will power. In German the joke is compounded as a pun since Stuhl (chair) is also a polite way of saying shit (stool), and that too is a used and mineralized material with chaotic character, reflected in the texture of the cross section of fat.

“Man kann sich nichts dabei denken. Malen ist eine andere Form des denkens. Das wär genauso wenn man Einstein fragt was denken Sie sich dabei wenn sie Gleichungen machen. Der denkt sich nichts dabei, der rechnet.”
“Man muss sich innerlich engagieren um Kunst zu machen. Einmal davon besessen, treibt man es schließlich so weit zu denken, dass man die Menschheit mit Malerei verändern könnte. Wenn man aber von dieser Leidenschaft frei ist, dann sollte man die Finger davon lassen. Denn im Grunde genommen ist die Malerei eine komplette Idiotie.”
