 In this context, the installation “Selbstähnliche Strukturen“ (Self-Similar Structures) combines macro images of mosses and lichens with digital aerial images so as to reveal the hidden structures of the unique flora of the Magallanes region in Chile – fractal structures remain self-similar even if the observation scale is altered (Benoit Mandebrot “ Theory of Roughness”). The project aims at artistically exploring self-similarity in the natural structures of this region both macroscopically as well as from an aerial perspective,​ in the knowledge that natural structures are always imperfect structures characterized by fractures in regularity and a transgression of the expected. In this context, the installation “Selbstähnliche Strukturen“ (Self-Similar Structures) combines macro images of mosses and lichens with digital aerial images so as to reveal the hidden structures of the unique flora of the Magallanes region in Chile – fractal structures remain self-similar even if the observation scale is altered (Benoit Mandebrot “ Theory of Roughness”).

 „Seltsame Attraktoren“ (Strange Attractors) is about a generative system for sound and projections based on an analogue computer that calculates these Strange Attractors. The title of the work refers to the mathematical term of the same name (David Ruelle / Floris Takens, 1971) borrowed from chaos theory which describes physical laws of chaotic behaviour in dynamic processes. Based on strange attractors it’s possible to for instance to mathematically describe turbulent currents of liquids or gases that cannot otherwise by analytically captured due to their complexity and level of randomness. „Seltsame Attraktoren“ (Strange Attractors) is about a generative system for sound and projections based on an analogue computer that calculates these Strange Attractors.

Wolfgang Spahn is a visual & sound artist based in Berlin. His work includes interactive installations, performances of light & sound and miniature-slide-paintings. His art explores the field of analogue and digital media and focuses on both their contradiction and their correlation.
