In »Organism«, Simona Koch traces the currents and connections of the living as part of the great world organism, the world as a whole. She explores scientific questions with artistic strategies and, free from the constraints of scientific work, is able to open up perspectives which show the game of life in its ever new facets and interconnections. »Organisms« is the sketchbook of the creative spirit whose questions have become the driving force of a never-ending world transformation. Essays by biologists and philosophers supplement the work of the artist, which in its combination of aesthetics and science allows inquisitive research and curiosity to be given equal treatment. Ultimately »Organisms« develops the perspective of a shared development of nature and culture.
