The one the other

frankfurt a/m 2019

A machine in a house in a street, named after the British Engineer William Lindley (1808-1900).In the Panoptikum of the LINDLEY an infinity machine was installed. A physical animation consisting of multi-layered, transparent levels in colored acrylic. These are in pendency of each other in a recurring choreography. It shows the motor power behind all pictures and sounds of the house. The constructivist staging evokes memories of the industrial revolution, the creative era of Lindley. At the same time, the machine remains fragmentary: there is no beginning or end. One is the other.
