Room: The Cosmographic Chambers

Interpretative understandings of the world, its order and operations, undoubtedly influence visual languages. Think, for example, about how the understanding of the laws of nature inform visual compositions, or separating the world into the four fundamental elements inform colour studies. Or here, see that workbench over there? Right next to Johannes Kepler’s ‘Mysterium Cosmographicum,’ you can see the ‘Platonic Solids’ laying around. This however, is not restricted to historical predecessors. On the contrary, it is best not to overlook how contemporary cosmological visualisations, through satellite images, feed back into the visual languages of our digital age.
