Meanwhile - Poster Performace curated by Edition Taube
Edition Taube organized a 3 days poster performance at deuxpiece gallery in Basel, Switzerland. The task was to design a poster within 2 hours, using only imaginary you created in this time slot and mainly respond to an excerpt of „Tertum Organum“, written in 1920 by P.D. Ouspensky - an esoteric-philosophic attempt to deal with new forms of simultaneity.
About 20 designers took part on this event - my time slot was on Saturday, the 18th of June, 11am-01pm. Staying at my friend André’s house I took pictures of him and his family with “Panoramatic” a 360°panorama software for Iphone which I used more or less wrong to create this collages of different perspectives.
“If we imagine a receptivity which is on a level higher than our consciousness, possessing a broader angle of view, then this receptivity will he able to grasp, as something simultaneous, i. e., as a moment, all that is happening for to during a certain length of time—minutes, hours, a day, a month. Within the limits of its moment such a receptivity will not be in a position to discriminate between before, now, alter; all this will be for it now. Now will expand.“ P. D. Ouspensky, 1920
