Multiversum is written for two solo instruments and orchestra, for two instruments of the same family: the traditional organ with its rich but static colours and the modern Hammond, which can continuously change colours. It was very important for me that the sound of the two organs could completely wrap around the audience, like we imagine the cosmos envelops us. The traditional organ sounds from the front, the Hammond from the back. If we visualise the two organs as our galaxy, then the different groups of the orchestra can represent different galaxies. That’s how the “Universe” becomes the “Multiversum”.

This work begins from the exploration of an imaginary celestial space which is translated into sound space. How does each celestial sphere – starting from its manifestation as a unit – interact with the cosmos where it belongs? How does it react to its law? How does it transform itself integrating with the system, until the loss of identity? In contrast to this process, the constellations act by highlighting the bodies in their uniqueness through the creation of symbolic links: beyond their meaning, they stand as a classification and articulation device of the individual within the system.

Questo lavoro parte dall’esplorazione di uno spazio celeste immaginario che si traduce in spazio sonoro. In che modo ogni sfera celeste – a partire dalla sua manifestazione come unità – interagisce con il cosmo a cui appartiene? Come reagisce alla sua legge? Come si trasforma integrandosi con il sistema, fino alla perdita di identità? In contrasto con questo processo, le costellazioni agiscono mettendo in evidenza i corpi nella loro unicità attraverso la creazione di collegamenti simbolici: al di là del loro significato, si pongono come dispositivo di classificazione e articolazione dell’individuo all’interno del sistema.

Eelco Brand

Imitation is a part of being human. Eelco Brand uses both paint and digital techniques to create images that reflect his conception of nature. In this sense his works are not so much the depiction of an actual place or event, but the way he imagined it and modelled it in the calculated space of digital art. Viewing his work can be both an alienating and deeply human experience. His subjects are modelled to the utmost detail to create a kind of hyperreal cosmos, a simulacrum of nature. Still, we experience these models of forests, cars and mountains as pure conveyers of meaning. These static images speak the language of scale, light, repetition, infinite detail and the deeper meaning of a simple gesture.



He painted the abysses of the human soul: the British artist Francis Bacon. Basic mechanisms of relationships such as desire, domination and exclusion he presented with merciless honesty and painful beauty.
With her piece, Nanine Linning fathoms the emotional cosmos of Bacon`s paintings and detects in their uncompromising depiction an analogy with her own art. With excessive physicality, the choreography explores fundamental patterns of behavior, which blur the line between human and feral bearing by their archaic and merciless nature. From an almost disturbing proximity the spectator witnesses the struggle of the individual for affiliation.At the same time fascinating and disturbing, the piece celebrates its comeback on stage fourteen years after its first release. BACON, which received the »Swan« for the best Dutch choreography, returns with revised choreography and new video- and light design.


Розмари Трокель
A Cosmos

В своем «Космосе» немецкая художница Розмари Трокель (р. 1952) создает поле взаимодействия идей, возникших в разные эпохи и в разных областях знания. Собственные работы она окружила созвездием артефактов природного и рукотворного происхождения. Для выставки отобраны только те произведения других авторов, в которых затронуты темы, близкие Трокель. При этом известность фамилии не играет роли.


In ancient Greek Omphalos means navel as in navel or center of the world. Jalet’s creation examines the question of origins. The choreographer reflects on the human predicament and life in the cosmos, a recurrent theme in his work. For his first Latin American creation, Jalets brings together an ensemble of 20 dancers who perform to the music of Marihiko Hara et Ryūichi Sakamoto. This stunning performance makes light of gravity and instability, unfolding at the very edge of empty space. Exceptional event: the only performances in France as part of a world tour.


Cosmos is a collection of Vangelis’ early-’70s space music. It is pure and graceful with no frills. Vangelis has an aggressive style on the synth, and these compositions are pure Berlin-school electronica, with cosmic and dynamic atmospheres. This will appeal to fans of Ron Boots, Klaus Schulze, Edgar Froese, and Ian Boddy.

Cosmos is a two metre spherical wooden sculpture that has been formed from scientific data made tangible. Interested in the divide between how science represents the physical world and how we experience it, Semiconductor have taken scientific data as being a representation of nature and are exploring how we can physically relate to it.

Steven Holl Architects

Ecology and Planning Museums

Entering on the ground level to the ecology museum reveals a projection next to the restaurant and retail areas. an elevator takes guests to the top level where their descent through the three ecologies – earth to cosmos, earth to man, earth to earth – begins, connected through a series of ramps.
the earth to earth exhibit on the bottom floor features a plane that turns clockwise, moving slowly down towards the ocean ecology space appropriately situated under the reflecting pond of the exterior plaza. the earth to earth section contains four outdoor green terraces as temporary exhibit spaces that change with the seasons.The shared public square also marks the entrance to the planning museum where visitors are greeted by a large model of the eco-city and another temporary display area. a multimedia system makes the next sequence of program, the theory and practice zones, come to life with dynamic informative videos, images, and sounds, all located on the second level. mechanical escalators transport guests to the third floor where one-way display is turned into an interactive relationship with the viewer. this is accompanied by a 3D cinema and a restaurant with views out towards the sea. on the top storey one can find the green architecture, landscape and water resources exhibits as well as access to the vegetative roof-scape offering offering unmatched views.

Steven Holl a été chargé de projeter deux édifices pour celle annoncée comme la première ville écologique de Chine, Tianjin Eco City, qui se dressera à 150 km de Pékin.
Considérés globalement, les deux projets de Steven Holl semblent centrés sur le concept du Yin et du Yang chinois. Les deux constructions, situées l?une en face de l?autre et séparées par un plan d?eau, sont complémentaires. L?Ecology Museum s?approprie des volumes soustraits au Planning Museum.
L?architecte a projeté un parcours d?exposition descendant pour l?Ecology Museum, grâce à un système de rampes : Earth to Cosmos, Earth to Man et Earth to Earth d?où les visiteurs accèdent à l?Ocean Ecology Exhibition s?étendant sous la place d?eau qui sépare les deux édifices.


Anatomy of Form
The Divine Proportion in the Platonic Solids

In fact, the Graham Foundation recognized Tyng’s talent nearly half a century ago in 1965, when she was awarded for her project Anatomy of Form: The Divine Proportion in the Platonic Solids:In her research she developed a theory of hierarchies of symmetry—symmetries within symmetries—and a search for architectural insight and revelation in the consistency and beauty of all underlying form.It’s fascinating stuff, and the images alone have piqued my interest in Tyng’s theories, which cover topics from Jungian cycles to the cosmos. Tyng (b. 1920 in Jiangxi, China) was one of the first women to earn a Masters in Architecture from Harvard. She spent nearly three decades collaborating with Louis Kahn before shifting her focus to research at the University of Pennsylvania in the late 60’s. The title of the exhibition and her works belie the understated beauty of their execution, which demonstrate the expressive power of order and geometry. Tyng’s unique command of form is matched by her raw intellect; thus, she elegantly articulates her vision in the models seen here.




A Cosmos riflette l’interesse dell’artista nel creare uno spazio in cui le idee possano esistere tra diverse discipline, passate e presenti. Molti degli oggetti e delle opere d’arte, selezionati da Trockel in dialogo con la curatrice Lynne Cooke, producono un contesto per il lavoro dell’artista all’interno di altri campi di indagine, come le scienze naturali e la storia naturale. Gli acquerelli dipinti dalla pioniera botanica Maria Sibylla Merian si trovano accanto a intricati modelli di invertebrati marini realizzati da Leopold e Rudolph Blaschka, inizialmente utilizzati come strumenti di ricerca da naturalisti che non avevano accesso a esemplari viventi. Per più di trent’anni Trockel ha resistito a uno stile identificabile, lavorando in una varietà di materiali, tra cui lana, bronzo e oggetti trovati, e una gamma di mezzi, tra cui fotografia, collage, video e assemblaggio. Le costanti della sua pratica ad ampio raggio includono questioni che hanno a lungo occupato il suo pensiero e che hanno sostenuto la sua diversa attività, come le idee contrastanti del femminismo e le divisioni costruite tra dilettante e professionista, celebrità e anonimato, e il fine e applicato. arti. Più in generale, attraverso i suoi lavori Trockel sonda non solo le interrelazioni tra esseri umani e animali, ma anche il nostro impatto, come specie, sul mondo naturale.

White Hole
Contemplation of The Cosmos

The collaborative installation White Hole between artist Mariko Mori and Architects Kengo Kuma is a experiential structure designed to contemplate the arise of the cosmos using a light weight structural form. The large white dome is built from spray polyurethane, primarily used for insulating buildings, applied over a draped mesh, forming the catenary structure. Kengo Kuma termed the structure Bubble Wrap which is then inverted to form a rough dome. The expanded polyurethane material was selected for its capacity to create volume from very little material, which the architects claims to be comprised of 99% air.  The envelope has the characteristic of being in a fluid, unsettled state, as though just created or born.

Paul Friedlander is one of the greatest representatives of kinetic art in our time, a scientific artist, as he describes himself on his personal website, which also tells the origin and development of his interest in creating works with light. The long-term goal is to integrate light sculptures with digital art to create three-dimensional projections. He developed his own CEP / ART software for anyone to experiment with their computer’s light and color effects. This software is available on its website in an online version and one for download is free.
