Since ADA touched the hands as well as the imagination of the people for the first time, many visitors sent me wonderful images, thoughts , memories and associations evoked by their experiences. Some of them very personal, some fantastic, some objective, some philosophical … but all of them gave ADA new facets and let her grow. So I decided to collect them here to have some kind of archive of ADA-cosmos.
«ADA» by Karina Smigla-Bobinski, is a post-industrial „creature“, visitor animated, creatively acting artist-sculpture, self-forming artwork, resembling a molecular hybrid, such as a one from nano biotechnology. It developes the same rotating silicon-carbon-hybrids, midget tools, miniature machines able to generate simple structures. This here is a nanorobot at work replacing human nerve cells with artificial nerve cells. This CG animation visualizes one of the possible future applications and uses of nanotechnology.
It reminded me of the film „The Arrival“

Annunciation to God the Father, painting by Jacopo Palma Junior, 1620 … … … Marcel Duchamp – Sixteen Miles of String Photo by John D. Schiff „Visitors to the opening of the First Papers of Surrealism exhibition in New York in 1942 were disorientated, not only by Marcel Duchamp’s famous ‘mile of string’ installation, but also by the presence of a group of children who, at Duchamp’s instigation, bounced balls and played hopscotch among them.“ https://www.tate.org.uk … … … A project to simulate the brain inside a computer could unravel the mystery of consciousness > http://bit.ly/2yfnbzQ „I delve into Shakespeare and his theatrical world so that I can, through him and his performances, explain our contemporary contemporary in one sentence: Horror combined with the temptation of pleasure; and the feeling of guilt in man. Like what happened in the seductive play of Seville. Or, as Alexander Smirnov puts it in his article The Nature and Development of Shakespeare’s Humanism: Awareness of Human Tragedy. Awareness of all human fatigue. And since the reformation of time – which is corrupt – is something that cannot be done, thinking and understanding are, for Hamlet and us, equally a question.“ This what look like ADA sample drawing is a 2-fold screen painting „Cracked ice“ by japanise artist Maruyama ōkyo from 1750/1799! This painting is conceptualized as three-dimensional space. „It is a philosophical contemplation of two concepts fundamental to Buddhism, inperfection and impermanence. Inperfection because these lines are uncontrolled and irregular, and impermanence because of course that Ice will melt.“ … … Jackson Pollock > https://youtu.be/Ae_CWxCZOS8
