The Mechanical Corps

As a kind of metamorphosis of the work "Air Abraham", "Abraham I" explores the interfaces of mythology and science in an interplay between the present, the past and the future. Based on the ancient myth of the flying carpet, "multi-dimensional" - "flying object" is Constructed, All which is not only spatial, that is but temporal distances and Creates its own, novel universe through the interdisciplinary connection of its components, Vert already in the craftsmanship and manufacturing process, making the individual parts of the sculpture made of wood and brass in the workshops of Istanbul in traditional craftsmanship, but restricting themselves in design to strict geometric forms and technically oriented details.The visual-aesthetic result is an entity that looks as old-fashioned and futuristic as the memory of aircraft to the beginnings of aviation as well as the idea of ​​a spaceship in space. Both stood for the long term of the exploration of the unknown, for the beginning of a journey to new knowledge, the search for answers. This is the study of mathematics, astronomy and physics as well as aspects of numerology, astrology and esotericism and putting them together to form a holistic, comprehensive explanation attempt. Both stood for the long term of the exploration of the unknown, for the beginning of a journey to new knowledge, the search for answers.This is the study of mathematics, astronomy and physics as well as aspects of numerology, astrology and esotericism and putting them together to form a holistic, comprehensive explanation attempt.

This is the study of mathematics, astronomy and physics as well as aspects of numerology, astrology and esotericism and putting them together to form a holistic, comprehensive explanation attempt.
A corpus in the form of a hexagon forms the center of the sculpture. He is a member of the executive board, the micro level, the familiar from the unknown.Nonetheless, thesis levels are connected by nearly 900 screws, Which externally fix plates in the form of constellations and each inside represent a visible from the earth star of our solar system. The inside of the sphere can be connected from a Certain perspective to a geometric structure similar to the so-called amplitude-thronon recently discovered by quantum physicists. With the Perception of the Viewer, the filigree plates, which are like wings or sails, are fasted to the outer skin the massive structure against all physical laws.They are arranged like a jigsaw puzzle and their patterns in different directions to form a large map.
The sculpture thus overrides previous ideas and open up dimensions of a new reality. Although, or perhaps because, the work may be understood as a plea for fantasy, its almost lavish opulence and the underlying idea is a totally inappropriate counterpoint to current social and artistic tendencies. Not only does the game with the epochs always be taken to extremes, but the romanticism associated with material and subject matter becomes a piece of political provocation.
