Carsten Nicolai

»Every work in this book ascends from a certain state of affairs, a certain knowledge in the system of coordinates: it‘s the speed of light, the interaction of forces, the functioning of magnetic fields and heat waves, the accumulation and dissolving of particles. This is the plane of reference which actualizes chaos, puts it into the system of numerical and countable multiplicities. However, the most important thing is that these works take the actual state of affairs, the numerical multiplicities as the starting point and transform them into virtual intensive multiplicities.«
(Audronė Žukauskaitė in her text »The Art of the Virtual: Carsten Nicolais Pionier«)
