As We Used to Float by JULIAN CHARRIÈRE at the Berlinische Galerie #revisit #paradise
#juliancharrière at #berlinischegalerie exhibiting alleged paradisiacal impressions...(see previous post for more details).
Alleged paradisiacal impressions...The exhibition As We Used to Float by JULIAN CHARRIÈRE @julian.charriere at the Berlinische Galerie @berlinischegalerie shows his impressions 70 years after the first US nuclear weapons tests on the bikini atoll. He has embarked on an expedition to a geographical area that has been rendered permanently uninhabitable for man due to the environmental damage caused. #revisit #paradise
We are thinking about #timetravel and the words @louisaelderton wrote about cave paintings in our first article. You can find the whole text Before and After the Collapse: Paintings of the Chauvet Cave in our online journal... Perhaps you too find it hard to fully grasp the magnitude of time. Of course we know the answer to the question of how long the world has existed; we can quickly tap the query into Google and in a matter of seconds read numbers that explain our time continuum—the Earth is about 4.5 billion years old, plus or minus 1 per cent, of which homo sapiens have existed for about 200,000 years. Yet actually feeling this quantification of time arguably requires something beyond our physical capabilities. Each of our bodies takes us through a hundred years, if we’re lucky, so to really feel the immense scale of time’s passing is difficult for us to compute, regardless of our cognitive understanding. When we look at ancient images or objects, we might sometimes think, I can’t quite believe how old it really is...#timecontinuum #beforeandafter #pastandfuture
Will the Grand Tour of the future be a space voyage between planets? The poster photographed here is part of NASA's Visions of the Future 2015 series. #spacetravel #grandtour The Art Library in Berlin has put together an exhibition on the ABC of Travel based on its diverse holdings and works from all collections. #thingswelike
The Art Library in Berlin has put together an exhibition on the ABC of Travel based on its diverse holdings and works from all collections. #thingswelike The exhibition text for this illustration reads roughly: Relaxation and exoticism stand for a stereotypical dream journey, provided with the symbol of the oasis. Why does this oasis in our imagination always lie in the distance? The 2015 NASA poster questions the assumption and also refers to earlier travel advertisements.
The Art Library in Berlin has put together an exhibition on the ABC of Travel based on its diverse holdings and works from all collections - architecture, book art, photography, graphic design and fashion photography. The thematically arranged exhibits range from medieval pilgrimages, expeditions in the colonial era and humanistic Grand Tours to the jet set and mass tourism of the 20th century. #thingswelike
